Loving Others: Scriptures and Books

The Importance of Love:

Proverbs 3:3 (NIV) Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.

1 Cor. 13:13 (NIV) And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Loving our families:

Ephesians 5:25 (NIV) Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
Ephesians 5:28 (NIV) In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
Colossians 3:19 (NIV) Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
Titus 2:4 (NIV) Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children,

Loving other Christians:

John 13:35 (NIV) By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."

1 Peter 2:17 (NIV) Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king.

Loving our neighbors:

Leviticus 19:18 (NIV) Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.

Romans 13:9-10 (NIV) The commandments, "Do not commit adultery," "Do not murder," "Do not steal," "Do not covet," and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: "Love your neighbor as yourself." [10] Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

Galatians 5:14 (NIV) The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."

James 2:8 (NIV) If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, "Love your neighbor as yourself," you are doing right.

Loving our Enemies:

Luke 6:27 (NIV) But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,

Luke 6:35 (NIV) 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 sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
