1 Cor.13 1,3 If I speak with the eloquence of men and of angels, but have no love, I become no more than blaring brass or crashing cymbal… If I dispose of all that I possess, yes, even if I give my own body to be burned, but have no love, I achieve precisely nothing. 5-6 Love has good manners and does not pursue selfish advantage. It is not touchy. It does not keep account of evil or gloat over the wickedness of other people. On the contrary, it is glad with all good men when truth prevails.7-8a Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. Love never fails. 12 At present we are men looking at puzzling reflections in a mirror. The time will come when we shall see reality whole and face to face! At present all I know is a little fraction of the truth, but the time will come when I shall know it as fully as God now knows me! 13 In this life we have three great lasting qualities—faith, hope and love. But the greatest of them is love.
