Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” -1 Corinthians 13:4-7
“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” -John 15:12
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” -John 3:16
