15 Moving Bible Verses About Loving Others

Someone making an offering at the church, one of the four types of giving according to the bible.

For Christians, Bible verses about God’s Love are a solemn refuge in times of trouble. But God’s Love is intertwined with another kind of love: that of loving and serving others. Indeed, if we summarize the contents of The Bible, it all boils down to Love – for God and for others. One cannot exist without the other. But for this post, we’ll focus on the latter.

When we hear the word “love,” we tend to think about the romantic kind. But L/love, especially love for others, comes in all forms and varying degrees. It shows in how we care for our children, respect our parents, and look out for our neighbors and strangers. It’s the reason why charity exists and why some people are willing to devote their lives to the service of others. If you think about it, love is essentially the thread that holds our society together.

From the Old to the New Testament, there are tons of bible verses about L/loving others. Here are some of them:

  1. Love is patient and kind; Love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things –  1 Corinthians 13:4-7
  2. And so we know and rely on the Love God has for us. God is Love. Whoever lives in Love lives in God, and God in them. – 1 John 4:16

Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your Heavenly Father is perfect. – Matthew 5:43-48

A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. – Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
