The Greatest Love
LOVE as I have loved you.
If I speak in the tongues of men
or if I speak in the tongues and of angels
but have not LOVE
I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal
And if I have prophetic powers,
and understand all mysteries
and all knowledge
but have not LOVE, I am nothing
And if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains
but have not LOVE – I am nothing
If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned
but have not LOVE – I gain nothing.
LOVE is very patient
LOVE is kind
LOVE is not jealous
LOVE does not boast
LOVE is not arrogant or proud
LOVE does not insist on its own was.
LOVE is not rude
LOVE is not selfish or self-seeking
LOVE in not easily angered, irritable or touchy
LOVE keeps no record of wrongs.
LOVE does not rejoice at wrongdoing
LOVE rejoices with the truth
LOVE bears all things
LOVE believes all things
LOVE endures all things
LOVE hopes all things.
LOVE never ends.
As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease
As for knowledge, it will pass away
For we know in part and we prophesy in part
but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.
When I was a child
I spoke like a child
I thought like a child
I reasoned like a child
When I became a man, I gave up childish ways
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face
Now I know in part
Then I shall know fully,
even as I have been fully known.
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three..
but the greatest of these……..
Greater LOVE hath no man than this.. that a man lay down his life for his friends
Are you able to give Love like this?
Are you able to receive Love like this?
