1 Samuel 2:30
For this reason the Lord God of Israel has said, Truly I did say that your family and your father's people would have their place before me for ever: but now the Lord says, Let it not be so; I will give honour to those by whom I am honoured, and those who have no respect for me will be of small value in my eyes.
Because he has given me his love, I will take him out of danger: I will put him in a place of honour, because he has kept my name in his heart.
He who has my laws and keeps them, he it is who has love for me: and he who has love for me will be loved by my Father, and I will have love for him and will let myself be seen clearly by him.
For the Father himself gives his love to you, because you have given your love to me and have had faith that I came from God.
1 John 4:19
We have the power of loving, because he first had love for us.
Let your mind be turned to your Maker in the days of your strength, while the evil days come not, and the years are far away when you will say, I have no pleasure in them;
I have not given my word in secret, in a place in the underworld; I did not say to the seed of Jacob, Go into a waste land to make request of me: I the Lord say what is true, my word is righteousness.
Make search for the Lord while he is there, make prayer to him while he is near:
But let your first care be for his kingdom and his righteousness; and all these other things will be given to you in addition.
Make a request, and it will be answered; what you are searching for you will get; give the sign, and the door will be open to you:
And when Jesus saw it, he was angry, and said to them, Let the little children come to me, and do not keep them away; for of such is the kingdom of God.
But if any man among you is without wisdom, let him make his request to God, who gives freely to all without an unkind word, and it will be given to him.
Let all the children of Levi be numbered by their families and their fathers' houses; let every male of a month old and over be numbered.
