We are to walk in love according to St. Paul

 Ephesians 5:2 “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savior.”

Let your behavior be of a loving nature. In your actions and reactions, let there be love demonstrated. Let love be a part of your life’s attributes or characteristics. Let every act of life be dictated by love to God and man. That is, let your lives be characterized by love; let that be evinced in all your deportment and conversation. “As Christ also hath loved us.” We are to evince the same love for one another which he has done for us. He showed his love by giving himself to die for us, and we should evince similar love to one another.

Paul spoke about the importance of love. Please refer to the following verses :

 1Cor 13:1 ¶ Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

1 Cor 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

1Cor 13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 1Cor 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

1Cor 16:14 Let all your things be done with charity.

Col 3:14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. (completeness)
