Love: The greatest of them all.

Jesus said,” Love one another as I have loved you.” And Paul in his letter to the Corinthians added, ” And now these three remain: Faith, Hope and Love. But the greatest of these is LOVE.”

What is love?

First , let’s describe love ; Love is an irresistible feeling which expresses itself in willingness to do anything to put a smile on the faces of the people one adores or cherishes , and also keep them safe from any harm .

When you love someone you can bear me witness that there’s nothing you desire but the very best for them . You will do anything to make sure they are okay and will even make decisions that make sense to no one but yourself and those you love.

You can’t love someone and want bad things to happen to them . Hate and love cannot co-exist for the same person. Hate is caused by unforgiveness , bitterness in your heart because of all the wrongs and unpleasant experiences someone or some people put you through .

It is this bitterness that causes us to focus on other people’s imperfections , weaknesses instead of their positive side. The more you keep a record of wrongs , is the more your love for others will deteriorate . And bitterness in your heart will hurt you more than it will any other person .

Bitterness and negativity leads to tension , stress and hence illnesses to the body . Therefore love is the way to keep you pushing for an abundant and happy life.

Love of each other bible verses

One of my favorite verses in the Bible is 1 Cor 13: 1-13 which all talks about love . And is the lonest chapter on love in the entire bible .

1 Corinthians 13

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.

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. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.

For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Galatians 5:14
For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Mark 12:30-31
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: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

Quotes about love

Luke 6:32-36

“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full.

But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

Romans 13:10
Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

Romans 12:9-10

Love in Action
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
