The Excellence of Love
If I speak in the tongues of
men and of angels, but have not love in my heart, I am only a noisy gong.
If I have
the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains,
but have not love in my heart, I am nothing.
If I give all I possess to
the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love in my heart, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is
kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not arrogant.
Love is not rude, it is not
self-serving, it is not easily angered, or resentful.
Love does not delight in
evil but rejoices with the truth.
Love always protects, always
trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
For where there are
prophecies, they shall fail, where there are tongues, they shall cease, where there is knowledge, it shall vanish
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
