The greatest and purest thing we can do in this world is to love the people, animals and nature around us. Whether its friends, family or strangers, we must not feel hate towards anyone. God doesn't put limits on love, and neither should we.

bible verses about love

Since according to the Bible God is love, it means we need to use Him as an example as we learn how to love others, and open ourselves to the feeling of love. We need to look up to him, as he is the perfect source for us to learn how to treat others, and learn to love even those that are difficult to love.

The list below includes some of the most inspiring love Bible verses that will help you see what love is actually about. The list includes some of my favorite Bible verses as well.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."
1 Corinthians 13:4-8

"Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail."
Lamentations 3:22

"Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law."
Romans 13:10

Bible Verses About Family

All families are made by God, but not all are made the same. Some can include only a mom, some just a dad, or only grandparents, and so on. There is no family alike, but that doesn't mean that they aren't all strong Godly families.

Family brings us happiness, love and joy, particularly when things are tough. No matter if the tensions are between two loving and committed parents, between parents and their children, or any other situation, you need to stay strong and believe that you will find a way out of that situation and get the harmony and happiness in your home restored.

I hope that these verses will bring you joy and hope that things will eventually improve, as love is the strongest force of all.

"Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred."
Proverbs 15:17

"Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good."
Romans 12:9

"We love because he first loved us."
1 John 4:19

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it."
Proverbs 22:6

Funny Bible Verses

Many people, mostly those who haven't read it, consider the Bible as a boring book that only has commandments about how you should live your life, what's right and what's wrong and nothing more. That's simply not true.

The Bible actually has tons of interesting stories about witches, ghosts, giants, and scary stories. Here are a few verses that illustrate that:

"Let beer be for those who are perishing, wine for those who are in anguish!"
Proverbs 31:6

"But Jael, Heber's wife, picked up a tent peg and a hammer and went quietly to him while he lay fast asleep, exhausted. She drove the peg through his temple into the ground, and he died."
Judges 4:21

This one might need a bit more explaining, so it can make more sense./p>

During that particular time in the story Israel is ruled by elected judges. The judge that's in charge during that particular time is Deborah, who gets orders from God to go to war with the Caananites. The Caananite's leader is a man by the name of Sisera, who runs away and hides during battle. He tries to hide in a tent that belongs by Herber, a friend of the Caananites. However, his wife, Jael, isn't that friendly, so she kills Sisera by driving a tent peg straight through his skull, during his sleep.

"Even the handle sank in after the blade, and his bowels discharged. Ehud did not pull the sword out, and the fat closed in over it."
Judges 3:22

Yet another graphic death... this one might even be worse than the last.

But let's go over to the more cheerful and uplifting side of the Bible.

Easter Bible Verses

Easter Sunday is one of the most anticipated days of the year. We all look forward to decorating eggs, getting together with the whole family, wearing some lovely pastel dresses, and just enjoying some valuable time with our loved ones, over delicious home-cooked food.

We celebrate the resurrection of our lord and savior, the return of hope and the sign of eternal life, and that's what makes the day extra special.

There's no better way to show that we honor this occasion than by reading some of the most prevailing Easter Bible verses:

Bible Verses about Death

The thought of dying without knowing what awaits us can be terrifying to some people, and is definitely one of the deepest mysteries of all time. If you want to make sense of it all, and want to get answers to some of the hardest questions in life, according to the Bible, then these Bible verses might help you with that.

When we go looking for answers regarding life after death, we have but two sources that we can consult. We can either turn to human experience and find many ideas and theories, or turn to the Bible, where we can also find tons of information on the subject.

If we take our experience as humans into consideration, we'll find tons of guesses, ideas, and theories, but no definite truths. That's because, the only people who can tell us what happens in the afterlife are already there, which leaves us to wonder and look for answers elsewhere. One book that's abundant in answers is the Bible. You can find a lot of information on life after death in it, so let's see what it says on that subject.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;"

"For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive."
1 Corinthians 15:22

Children can be considered as a gift from God. They are filled with joy, laughter and above all - innocence. What the Bible teaches us is to be more like children, and have that same faith and trust that they have.

God loves all children equally. He doesn't see gender, race or nationality, as each child is "precious in His sight".

The following Bible verses will help lift your spirits and remind you to look at the world with purity and joy, as any child would, and remember your pure and innocent side that prevailed when you were a child.

If you read carefully, you'll see that God, promises us HIS peace. He doesn't want us to be troubled and worried, and he's here to help us achieve our inner peace.

The following Bible verses can also be used for meditation, or you can simply read them when you start feeling overwhelmed and don't know what to do about it.

Bible Verses About Joy

In today's harsh world joy is hard to come by. I mean sure, people are happy, at least they seem happy; they smile and laugh, but that doesn't always mean that they feel joy.

Finding a person that feels actual joy is an increasingly difficult mission these days. Joy is different from happiness. It's deeper and lasts longer. Happiness can come and go, but joy comes from within and is something that allows us to feel peaceful and content, no matter the circumstances we find ourselves in.

I hope you too can find joy in the beautiful Bible verses below.

"Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart."
Psalm 97:11

"But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful."
Psalm 68:3

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope."

What's wrong is to cause harm to you or to others while feeling angry and hurt, and letting your emotions take control over your actions.

Here are a few of my favorite Bible verses about anger that will help you learn how to live an anger-free life, and free yourself from all those negative emotions.
