Ed Harrison Mission Nigeria (EHMN) joined the world to celebrate lover’s day on the 14th of February, by organizing a valentine meeting for the youth as a way to equip them with prerequisite for love and the reason for love.
The meeting was presided by the founders of Ed Harrison Mission Nigeria, Ed and Lillie Harrison as they brought more light and understanding to the concept of love and the misconception among the people.
According to Ed Harrison, Jesus is the reason for love and everything we do must always abide in his words and any deviation from it is no longer love. While answering a question on Love and Money, Ed said money isn’t the ultimate in a relationship but commitment and ability to see the vision of both partners and work towards the direction. In his words, “money isn’t everything, you need to have a vision, if you start together, you can grow together”.
Also talking about love and attraction, he said attraction entails what you like which can be physical, spiritual or other qualities that a person has but shouldn’t be limited to the physical only.
As many people have problems picking the right person for marriage, Lillie Harrison said love is more than enough within marriage but not sufficient for picking a partner. “Any person going into marriage must establish his own identity before being tied to someone else and they should discover themselves in Christ Jesus…. Love is not enough, just because you love someone or someone loves you does not mean that they are the partner God has for you, Love is an attraction but God is the Glue. He must be what attaches you to the other person” she added.
The atmosphere became more exciting when people started to debate on love at first sight and different ways of meeting people. Lillie added that love at first sight limits love to physical attraction but love is deeper than such. She advised that people should rather fall in love with a person, his soul and innermost while also putting God at the center.
