Love is the core principle of Christianity, and God is the perfect representation of love.
There are numerous verses about love and relationships in the Holy Bible. Love is influenced by everything God does, and love is a fundamental characteristic of who God is.
God is a perfect source to know what love means and how everyone should be loving and treating others. Christians believe that love is God and God is love. For those interested in the Christian belief in love, C. S. Lewis writes about four different types of love (empathetic, friendly, romantic, and unconditional love) from a Christian and philosophical perspective in his book 'The Four Loves', published in 1960.
