Love is a concept that is talked about almost carelessly in our day. The Bible talks about love and gives clear guidance on love in a variety of settings. From marriage, friendships, and even relationships with those around you, the Bible is clear that God expects us to live a life filled with love.
Our prayer is that you can take the verses below to help guide you in your walk of life in love. If you ask God for help, He will help and guide you to a higher level of love, no matter the circumstance.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 – Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
