Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
1 Corinthians 13:4-5
Do everything in love.
1 Corinthians 16:14
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I entrust my life.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
1 John 4:16
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
We love because He first loved us.
1 John 4:19
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love.
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:2
Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are ever before me.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word.
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.
2 Thessalonians 3:5
No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
1 John 4:12
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.
1 John 4:20
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
Since you are precious and honored in my sight,
and because I love you,
I will give people in exchange for you,
nations in exchange for your life.
However, as it is written: What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived — the things God has prepared for those who love him.
1 Corinthians 2:9
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
1 John 3:1
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.
1 John 4:18
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.
1 Thessalonians 3:12
Whoever pursues righteousness and love
finds life, prosperity and honor.
Hatred stirs up conflict,
but love covers over all wrongs.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
1 Corinthians 13:1
I love the Lord, for he heard my voice;
he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
I will call on him as long as I live.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:8
For, Whoever would love life
and see good days
must keep their tongue from evil
and their lips from deceitful speech.
They must turn from evil and do good;
they must seek peace and pursue it.

1 Timothy 4:12
Do not hate a fellow Israelite in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt. Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.
Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
By day the Lord directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
1 John 4:10
But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.
