Love

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.  Proverbs 3:3

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.’ And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”  Matthew 22:37-39

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  I Corinthians 13:4-7

Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.  I John 4:20

So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her.  Genesis 29:20

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.  I Corinthians 13:13

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.  I John 4:18

Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.  Romans 13:10

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.  John 15:13

But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.  Matthew 5:44
