Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us.
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love: and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
We love Him, because He first loved us.
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
- I John 4:7-8,12,16,19-21
Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;
Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.
- Luke 20:46-47
