1 Samuel 16:7
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love.
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”
“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.”
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.”
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
“You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.”
“But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.”
“The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
“Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
“And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'”
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
