Paul Teaches About Love


Ephesians 5:2 Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ.

1 Corinthians 13

Love is supreme
Love is patient, kind, rejoices when truth rules, always hopeful, endures through everything,
Love is not jealous, boastful, proud, rude
Love does not demand it's own way, it is not irritable, it does not keep score, it is not happy about evil
Love never gives up and never loses faith


Jesus said that the greatest command is to love God and love your neighbor and now Paul tells us that we have to live a love filled life and to do it by following Christ example.

What a vivid definition of what love is and how it is supposed to behave, Paul left us with no doubt about what it is and how to do it. The difficult part is putting it into our lifestyle and making it a part of everything that we do.

The only way to be successful is to spend time with God each day so that you are exposed to his character and his mode of operation.


Show some love to everyone that you meet; it doesn't matter if you think that you deserve it or not. Help me to become more loving to my wife and kids by having those qualities that describe love in 1Corinthians 13.


Help me to follow your example in loving others.
