Love Is the Greatest

13If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn't love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.G1437G2980G1100G444G2532G32G1161G2192G3361G26G1096G2278G5475G2228G214G2950 2If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God's secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn't love others, I would be nothing.G2532G1437G2192G4394G2532G1492G3956G3466G2532G3956G1108G2532G1437G2192G3956G4102G5620G3179G3735G1161G2192G3361G26G1510G3762 3If 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.G2532G1437G5595G3956G3450G5224G5595G2532G1437G3860G3450G4983G2443G2545G1161G2192G3361G26G5623G3762 4Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proudG26G3114G5541G26G2206G3756G26G4068G3756G4068G5448G3756G5448 5or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.G807G3756G807G2212G3756G1438G3947G3756G3947G3049G3756G2556 6It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.G5463G3756G1909G93G1161G4796G225 7Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.G4722G3956G4100G3956G1679G3956G5278G3956 8Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!G26G3763G1601G1161G1535G4394G2673G1535G1100G3973G1535G1108G2673 9Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture!G1063G1097G1537G3313G2532G4395G1537G3313 10But when full understanding comes, these partial things will become useless.G1161G3752G5046G2064G5119G1537G3313G2673 11When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.G3753G2252G3516G2980G5613G3516G5426G5613G3516G3049G5613G3516G1161G3753G1096G435G2673G3516 12Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.G1063G737G991G1223G2072G1722G135G1161G5119G4383G4314G4383G737G1097G1537G3313G1161G5119G1921G2531G2532G1921 13Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.G1161G3570G3306G4102G1680G26G5023G5140G1161G3187G5130G26
