And now I will show you the most
If I speak in tongues of men and of angels, but
have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 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, I am nothing. If I give up all I possess and surrender
my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient; love is kind; it does not envy;
it does not boast; it is not proud. It is not rude; it is not self-seeking; it is not
easily angered; it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices
with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are
prophecies, they will pass away; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where
there is knowledge it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but
when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I
thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways
behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection, then we shall see face to face. Now I know in
part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and
love, but the greatest of these is love.
- I Corinthians, chapter 13
The entire law is summed up in a single command,
"Love your neighbor as yourself."
- Galatians 5:14 (NIV)
is love that makes the impossible possible.
Where there is love there is no darkness.
To love deeply in one direction makes us more loving in all others.
- Anne-Sophie Swetchine
Hatred stirs up
strife, but love covers all sins.
Bible, Book of Proverbs
