About LoveIs... ~ Purpose/Objective ~ Our Perspective
Love is understanding and respecting others... joy in each other's uniqueness
"Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."
--Paul in The Holy Bible, I Corinthians 13:4-7
"Love is considered the most basic emotion that human awareness can feel; therefore, it is the closest to the source of life."
--Deepak Chopra in Ageless Body, Timeless Mind
"Love does no wrong to a neighbor; love therefore is the fulfillment of the law."
--Paul in The Holy Bible, Romans 13:10
Two great study tools
Bible Gateway lets you search the Bible by keyword, verse, subject, and by just about any translation you can think of! In the results, you have options to read the full chapter, "in context", and other translations.
Here's a sample link to a search there on "Love is"
Bible Hub lets you search chapters and verses "interlinear", which shows both the English and Hebrew (OT) or Greek (NT) words, as well as having links to definitions of each word (from Strong's Concordance and more), and listing what part of speech each word is. Here's the link to John 17:3: "Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent."
