Love... Perhaps the most important instruction we receive from the Bible? I think so. Through-out the Bible it is mentioned again and again. Especially in the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Think about it... Time and time again throughout the Bible you will find the word love (and the instruction to practice it). "love one another", "love each other", "Love your neighbor as yourself", "For God so loved the world", and so on. Not only does the Bible repeatidly tell us to "love" but pretty much everything the Word teaches us involves the emotion of love. I mean, it's pretty hard to murder, cheat and steal if you truely love one another, no?
My new personal favorite verse "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. - 1 Corinthians 13:13" preached by Saul of Tarsus (Paul the Apostle). How great His command to love is also mentioned earlier in Mark 12:31 "The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these.".
Let's See Some Scriptures
1 Corinthians 13:13
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.
12 Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.
1 John 3:18
18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
1 John 4:7-8
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
