Daily Scripture Love and Compassion: Part 1

I will not let love and truth leave me; I will bind them around my neck and write them on the tablet of my heart.  (Proverbs 3:3)

A righteous man has regard for the needs of his animal, but the mercies of the wicked are cruel.  (Proverbs 12:10)

Through love and truth, iniquity is atoned for; and by the fear of the Lord, one turns aside from evil.  When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him.  (Proverbs 16:6-7)

He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, righteousness, and honor.  (Proverbs 21:21)

You desire mercy, not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.  (Hosea 6:6)

I will sow righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up my fallow ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until He comes and rains righteousness on me.  (Hosea 10:12)

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.  (Matthew 5:7)

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  And if I have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  And if I give all my possessions to the poor, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.  (1 Corinthians 13:1-3)

Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy; love does not boast, it is not arrogant, it does not behave rudely; it does not seek its own, it is not provoked, it keeps no record of wrongs; it does not rejoice in unrighteousness but rejoices with the truth; it bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails.  (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

I want everything I do to be done in love.  (1 Corinthians 16:14)
