Emphasis of Love in Religions and Spiritual Traditions

Most religious and spiritual traditions emphasize the importance of compassion, kindness, and goodwill towards others . This quote from Christian Paul of Tarsus (5-64/7 CE), from one of his letters to his fellow early Christians at Corinth is one of the most popular readings in Christian wedding ceremonies: “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, and 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.”
