10 Bible Verses About Love

10 Bible Verses About Love

10 Bible Verses About Love
Love is Jesus, Jesus is love. Jesus came to earth and preached how we were to love each other unconditionally. When I stop and just observe the human race, we fall short of Jesus' mission. The world would be an amazing place if we were to put some effort in loving each other. Whatever we do.... do it with love. 

Challenge yourself to Jesus' message. Take the rest of today and see if you are truly loving each other? 
  • When someone cuts you off in the car, how do you react?
  • When someone looks different that you, do you treat them the same?
  • When someone falls short of what you expect do you become frustrated?
  • When someone treats you poorly, do you retaliate back

Yes, love is not easy, but it is why Jesus came to earth. If is important to Jesus, it should be important to us. Below are some verse to encourage you.

For God So Loved the World
“God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Love Your Enemies
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” Matthew 5:43-45

Love Is Unselfish
“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.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-8

Love Your Neighbor as Your Self
“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31
