Thoughts on Love

Thoughts on love straight from the source (in no particular order) – The Holy Bible (ESV):

Colossians 3:14
“And above all these, put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-8,13
“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. Love never ends. So now, faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”

Romans 13:8
“Owe no one anything, except to love one another, for the one who has loved another has fulfilled the law.”

1 Corinthians 16:14
“Let all that you do be done in love.”

John 15:12
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”

1 John 4:16
“So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.”

Proverbs 10:12
“Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.”

1 John 4:8
“Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.”

With love eternal,
