February is often known to be a month all about love, whether that be romantic love, self-love, love for others, or the opportunity to cultivate rich relationships with family and friends. Here are 10 of our favourite Bible verses all about love:
1 Corinthians 16:14
Do everything in love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
Love does no harm to a neighbour. Therefore love is the fulfilment of the law.
1 Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
1 Corinthians 13:1-3
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. 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. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
1 John 4:7
Let us love one another, for love comes from God.
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.
