“Love” Worksheet

Print Friendly


I created the following worksheet using 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 to do at home with my children. I thought other moms (or dads) may want to use it with their families as well – so here you go!

Bible Study Activity:

  • Look up, copy, and discuss the proof texts that go with each of the characteristics of love below.
  • Using each of these characteristics, think of practical ways you can better demonstrate the love of Christ to those around you—especially those in your own household.
  • Pray and ask God to show you ways that you have failed to love your brothers and sisters n the following ways. Repent for any sins God shows you, and write a letter of apology to anyone who you may have failed to love.

1. Love suffers long and is kind (patiently returns blessings for curses)

  • Luke 6:28
  • Romans 12:14
  • 1 Peter 2:20-21; 3:9, 17; 4:1

2. Love does not envy (long for what someone else has)

  •   Galatians 5:26
  •   James 3:14-16
  •   1 Peter 2:1
  •   Hebrews 13:5

3. Love does not parade itself (flaunt one’s self)

  • Read Isaiah 3:16
  • Ezekiel 23:18

4. Love is not puffed up (does not think too highly of oneself, considering his/her own sin first)

  •   Matthew 7:3, 23:12
  •   Luke 18:11-14
  •   James 4:6
  •   Galatians 6:3
  •   Romans 12:3, 12:16

5. Love does not behave rudely (is respectful to others even when treated rudely)

  •   Ephesians 5:4
  •   1 Peter 1:7
  •   1 Corinthians 3:3

6. Love does not seek its own (is willing to graciously bear minor offenses and is careful to serve and put others first)

  •   1 Corinthians 10:24
  •   Philippians 2:4
  •   Matthew 16:24-25
  •   Matthew 20:28

7. Love is not provoked (not easily offended or angered)

  •   Proverbs 14:29
  •   Proverbs 15:18
  •   Proverbs 16:32
  •   Proverbs 19:11
  • James 1:19

8. Love thinks no evil (always thinks the best when considering the motives of others and doesn’t keep a “list” of offenses)

  •   Philippians 2:3-4
  •   Philippians 4:8

9. Love does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth (is grieved by sin for the sinner’s sake, not for his own)

  •   Proverbs 17:9
  •   Psalm 15:3
  •   Romans 1:32
  •   2 John 4
  •   3 John 3
  •   2 Corinthians 2:4
  •   2 Corinthians 12:21

10. Love bears all things (is ever-patient, helping to carry the burden of another)

  •   Colossians 3:13
  •   Galatians 6:2
  •   Romans 15:1
  •   1 Thessalonians 5:14
  •   James 5:10-11
  •   2 Timothy 2:24

11. Love believes all things (because of faith in God, love trusts and never loses hope)

  •   1 John 4:18
  •   Job 13:15
  •   Psalm 23:4

12. Love hopes all things (does not “give up” or give in to despair)

  •   Lamentations 3:24
  •   1 Peter 4:8
  •   2 Corinthians 4:8

13. Love endures all things (willing to suffer for the cause of Christ)

  •   Lamentations 3:32
  •   Isaiah 50:6
  •   Matthew 5:39
  •  Luke 6:28-29

Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. (Colossians 3:12–13)
