(Prov3:11-12) 11My son, do not discard the discipline of the Lord, and do not fall away when you are corrected by him. 12For whomever the Lord loves, he corrects, and just as a father does with a son, he wins him over.

(Mt22:36-40) 36“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” 37Jesus said to him: “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God from all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38This is the greatest and first commandment. 39But the second is similar to it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40On these two commandments the entire law depends, and also the prophets.”

(Lk6:27-34) 27But I say to you who are listening: Love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. 28Bless those who curse you, and pray for those who slander you. 29And to him who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your coat, do not withhold even your tunic. 30But distribute to all who ask of you. And do not ask again of him who takes away what is yours. 31And exactly as you would want people to treat you, treat them also the same. 32And if you love those who love you, what credit is due to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33And if you will do good to those who do good to you, what credit is due to you? Indeed, even sinners behave this way. 34And if you will loan to those from whom you hope to receive, what credit is due to you? For even sinners lend to sinners, in order to receive the same in return.

(Jn3:16) 16For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that all who believe in him may not perish, but may have eternal life.

(Jn14:15) 15If you love me, keep my commandments.

(Jn14:21) 21Whoever holds to my commandments and keeps them: it is he who loves me. And whoever loves me shall be loved by my Father. And I will love him, and I will manifest myself to him.”

(Jn15:12-13) 12This is my precept: that you love one another, just as I have loved you. 13No one has a greater love than this: that he lay down his life for his friends.

(Rom8:35-39) 35Then who will separate us from the love of Christ? Tribulation? Or anguish? Or famine? Or nakedness? Or peril? Or persecution? Or the sword? 36For it is as it has been written: “For your sake, we are being put to death all day long. We are being treated like sheep for the slaughter.” 37But in all these things we overcome, because of him who has loved us. 38For I am certain that neither death, nor life, nor Angels, nor Principalities, nor Powers, nor the present things, nor the future things, nor strength, 39nor the heights, nor the depths, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

(1Cor13:2) 2And if I have prophecy, and learn every mystery, and obtain all knowledge, and possess all faith, so that I could move mountains, yet not have charity, then I am nothing.

(1Cor13:4-7) 4Charity is patient, is kind. Charity does not envy, does not act wrongly, is not inflated. 5Charity is not ambitious, does not seek for itself, is not provoked to anger, devises no evil. 6Charity does not rejoice over iniquity, but rejoices in truth. 7Charity suffers all, believes all, hopes all, endures all.

(1Cor13:13) 13But for now, these three continue: faith, hope, and charity. And the greatest of these is charity.

(1Cor16:14) 14Let all that is yours be immersed in charity.

(Colossians3:14) 14And above all these things have charity, which is the bond of perfection.

(Heb13:1-2) 1May fraternal charity remain in you. 2And do not be willing to forget hospitality. For by it, certain persons, without realizing it, have received Angels as guests.

(1Pet4:8) 8But, before all things, have a constant mutual charity among yourselves. For love covers a multitude of sins.

(1Jn2:9) 9Whoever declares himself to be in the light, and yet hates his brother, is in the darkness even now.

(1Jn2:15-17) 15Do not choose to love the world, nor the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the charity of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world is the desire of the flesh, and the desire of the eyes, and the arrogance of a life which is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17And the world is passing away, with its desire. But whoever does the will of God abides unto eternity.

(1Jn3:1) 1See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we would be called, and would become, the sons of God. Because of this, the world does not know us, for it did not know him.

(1Jn3:14-18) 14We know that we have passed from death to life. For we love as brothers. Whoever does not love, abides in death. 15Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer. And you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding within him. 16We know the love of God in this way: because he laid down his life for us. And so, we must lay down our lives for our brothers. 17Whoever possesses the goods of this world, and sees his brother to be in need, and yet closes his heart to him: in what way does the love of God abide in him? 18My little sons, let us not love in words only, but in works and in truth.

(1Jn4:7-11) 7Most beloved, let us love one another. For love is of God. And everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8Whoever does not love, does not know God. For God is love. 9The love of God was made apparent to us in this way: that God sent his only-begotten Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10In this is love: not as if we had loved God, but that he first loved us, and so he sent his Son as a propitiation for our sins. 11Most beloved, if God has so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

(1Jn4:15-16) 15Whoever has confessed that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love. And he who abides in love, abides in God, and God in him.

(1Jn4:19-21) 19Therefore, let us love God, for God first loved us. 20If anyone says that he loves God, but hates his brother, then he is a liar. For he who does not love his brother, whom he does see, in what way can he love God, whom he does not see? 21And this is the commandment that we have from God, that he who loves God must also love his brother.

(1Jn5:3) 3For this is the love of God: that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not heavy.
