Treat People Better By Understanding These Bible Love Quotes

bible love quotes

One interesting fact about love is that you can love someone and still treat them really badly.

Especially when they've done something wrong to you.

That way you have an excuse to do something a lot worse to them.

But practicing love according to the Bible is difficult because it requires you to take on the burden and assault of other people.

Love Suffers A Long Time, Is Kind, Is Not Envious, Boastful Or Proud.

Love has to be patient resisting the urge to be angry, love needs to be kind at all times by not being envious of others, bragging about your accomplishments or being excessively proud of who you are.

Jesus is the son of God, (it doesn't get any higher than that) but He didn't walk around Judea proclaiming how important He was, where He came from or what He had the power to do when He was here on earth.

Even His disciples had to figure it out for themselves and they spent a lot of time around Him.John 6:69.

1 Corinthians 13:4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up.

Love Stays Calm, Seeks Other Peoples Wellness, Is Not Provoked Into And Doesn't Think Evil.

How hard is to stay calm when someone is disrespecting you for any reason?

Would your first thought be that this person obviously has a problem and there has to be something I can do to help them out?

Or would you allow yourself to be provoked into retaliation?

Jesus taught "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you." Matthew 5:44

Jesus was persecuted everywhere He went but you'll never read any stories about how He kicked someones butt or cursed someone out.

He constantly avoided conflict even though He had the authority to call down more than twelve legions of Angels to destroy the wicked if He so desired. Matthew 26:53

1 Corinthians 13:5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil.

Love Condemns Sin And Takes Pleasure In The Truth

I think a lot of people don't realize how guilty we are of not condemning sin and taking pleasure in the truth.

Especially when it has something to do with pre-marital sex.

Needless to say Jesus never had sexual relations with a woman even though He ministered to prostitutes, widows and many other married and single women.

Jesus said "If your right eye causes you to sin pluck it out and if your right hand causes you to sin cut it off " Matthew 5:29-30.

Meaning we need to make a concerted effort to get rid of the things that cause us to sin.

It could be a person, it could be a tv show, it could be a website, it could be a popular song and it could be tons of other stuff depending on how you were raised and what you may like to do.

1 Corinthians 13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth.

Love Puts Up With, Believes In, Hopes In, And Continues Through Everything.

Think about how hard it was for Jesus to endure the betrayal, ridicule and torture He had to accept in order to remain obedient to God.

He laid His life on the line in order to overcome the world.

He put up with a lot of suffering and shame all the way to the end in hope and belief that we could all be saved.

He said "There is no greater love than to lay down your life for your friends." John 15:13.

Then He did it.

And we can do the same by not giving up on people and helping them all the way through to the end of their struggles.

While taking on their burdens with them and helping them outlast their suffering with love. 1 Corinthians 13:7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
