The Greatest Love of All {Valentine's Day Bible Journaling}

What is love?

When I hear this question, I can not help but think about one of my favorite Bible verses, defining just what love is:

Love is patient, love is kind. 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.- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

This is perhaps one of the most popular Bible verses out there, and with good reason. It truly is a wonderful definition of what love is...and of what God is too. But it's not the only great verse about love...there are MANY!

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, I have enjoyed having the chance to do a little Bible journaling that is perfect for the season. Want some Valentine's Day journaling inspiration? Here are a few verses to get you started, and a look at some of my own pages too!



1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.

1 Corinthians 16:14
Let all that you do be done in love.

1 John 4:8
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

1 John 4:19
We love because he first loved us.

John 3:16
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
