Thursday Thirteen #4

Thirteen Scriptures of Love

Valentine's Day is right around the corner. I can honestly say, that I know that I'm loved. Not just by my Knight, our Ladies in Waiting, our Squires and my family, but by my Lord too.

So many don't know that they are loved. I've decided to share Thirteen of my favorite scriptures that contain the word LOVE. They are in no particular order. There are so many with the word "loved", but I decided to narrow it down to love. Otherwise my list would have to be longer than a list of Thirteen.

Oh, by the way, just in case you don't know... YOU ARE LOVED!

"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
-Romans 5:8

"Husbands, love you wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her"
-Ephesians 5:25

"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thing no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails..."
-1 Corinthians 13:4-8

"And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
-1 Corinthians 13:13

"Let all that you do be done with love."
-1 Corinthians 16:14

"A time to love, And a time to hate; A time for war, And a time of peace."
-Ecclesiastes 3:8

"Honor your father and your mother, 'and, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
-Matthew 19:19

"But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them."
-Luke 6:32

"Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all sins."
-Provers 10:12

"You have heard that is was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,"
-Matthew 5:43-44

"But love your enemies, do good and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil."
-Luke 6:35

"Jesus said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your hear, with all your soul and with all your mind."
-Matthew 27:37

"He who has M commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him."
-John 14:21
