Is it more important to love or be loved?

Report as

They are both very important! You have to make sure you love yourself before someone else can love you! or before you can love someone else!

In Maslow's hierarchy of needs both are equally as important. God bless.

I say to love others. If you love others then its easier to be loved in return rather than taking love and not giving it in return.

It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

The 10 Commandments establish the idea that to love is most important. Altho Jesus followed that example to the letter and look what it got Him !

Matthew 22:37-39

37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

This scripture means to put others before yourself. So the answer is to Love others first.

Acts 20:35

35.I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

Good morning cookie, question for you. Is this a religious based site? You've been here longer and I am curious since I received a comment on my post to this question and then I noticed answers started off with members' opinions then turned into religious answers regarding the posted question. Just a bit curious now especially after that debacle the other day with trucker lady. Anyway, when you have time to respond. As always, enjoy your day! = )

Both are equally important the love that one gives should be the love that one receives. Every normal human being wants to be loved, I know that I do and I'm willing to give love to all who desire it unconditionally, in a normal brotherly Godly way.===================If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn?t love others, I would have gained nothing. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! Three things will last forever?faith, hope, and love?and the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:3-8, 13 NLT)

TO LOVE.. 1st Corinthians 13 is the Love chapter.. The word charity is used for LOVE.... Here is one sentence.......

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.

A major aspect of true Christianity is love. Jesus told his disciples: “By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love among yourselves.” (John 13:35) He also stated that to "love your neighbor as yourself" was one of the greatest commandments. (Matthew 22:39)

Hope I helped!
