Scripture has a lot to say about love. In fact, the Bible uses different words to describe different kinds of love. Perhaps the most well known, are the four Greek words used for love used in the New Testament:. The Bible teaches us that love is at the center of the Christian faith. In its writings, we are told:. This Old Testament story is one of the most vivid pictures we see of Jesus, and how he would lay his life down for the sins of mankind. Application: Love comes at great cost. To truly love another, we must be willing to give our life away to them.
Summary Exodus : After the years of Joseph, a new Pharaoh commanded that all the baby boys born to the Hebrews be thrown into the Nile and drowned. Desperate to save her baby, a mother named Jochebed fashioned a basket for her child and sent it down the Nile River. Then she placed the child in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile. While we love our children in many ways, our greatest act of love will be entrusting their life to the Lord. God gave him incredible physical strength to defeat the Philistine invasions.
Unfortunately, he became entangled in a dubious romantic relationship with a woman named Delilah, which compromised his ability to lead. He was captured by the Philistines when he gave up the secret of his strength. He died in a final act of vengeance toward the Philistines.
This false love twists our affections inward rather than focusing them outward by serving God and others. Summary The Book of Ruth : This kids Bible story centers one of the great s of love and friendship recorded in the Bible. When the sons of Naomi pass away, she is convinced there is nothing but bitterness. There Ruth finds a new life, a new land, and a new love. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay.
Your people will be my people and your God my God. Application: As Jesus teaches true love goes the extra mile for another. In this story, Ruth faithfully stands by Naomi through chaos and calamity. Her faithful love is an incredible example to us all. But what can be missed is the incredible story of Mary and Joseph. Key Verse: Luke — So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. Application: At the center of every thriving marriage is a love of God that serves as the foundation for loving one another. This love of God binds Joseph and Mary together as they experience the challenges and triumphs of the Christmas story. Summary Matthew : Jesus taught His disciples to imitate the love of God in every action, even in view of His law. Instead of looking for an opportunity to inflict harsh punishment, or return evil for evil, He told the disciples to seek a peaceable solution and to act in love and forgiveness.
We are to respond as our Father in Heaven would respond. Love your enemies and do good to those who hurt you. Application: Loving those who love us back is easy. In doing so we imitate God who loved us while we were still sinners. Summary Luke —32 : This parable, also known as the Parable of the Lost Son, tells the story of a foolish man who rejects his father and squanders his inheritance.
Desperate, the Prodigal Son returns home in shame. But on his journey home the son is met by his father who lovingly wraps his arms around him overjoyed that his son has returned! His love is forgiving, compassionate, and determined. Even when we sin he waits for us with open arms and an open heart.
Summary Luke : This beloved story is the response of Jesus to the self-serving question of a lawyer. Who is my neighbor? Jesus answered by telling the story of a man left for dead and then rescued by a Samaritan. The point, according to Jesus, is that a true neighbor is anyone who shows mercy. In this story Jesus breaks the idea of love out of a rigid commandment and illustrates how it operates practically. Application: Love is not theoretical, something only to be pondered or written about.
Instead, love is an action. It rushes to those in need, swoops them up, and brings them life! Summary The Gospels : This kids Bible story focuses on the greatest act of love the world will ever know, the crucifixion of Jesus. As recorded in Matthew 26, Mark 14, Luke 22 and John 18 Jesus after being flogged, mocked and forced to wear a crown of thorns gave his life on a Roman cross. But Jesus did this willingly, he died to pay for the sins of all mankind! Application: True love sacrifices. Summary 1 Corinthians : 1 Corinthians 13 contains some of the most famous words about love ever written.
In this Bible story for kids we discover what love truly is, and why it is so important. Of all the gifts God has given us, nothing surpasses his love! It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. Application: If you have ever wondered what love is then then 1 Corinthians 13 is a must read! Swing on by and start exploring today.
