1 Corinthians 13

If I [can] speak in the tongues of men and [even] of angels,

but have not love (that reasoning, intentional, spiritual devotion such as is inspired by God’s love for and in us),

I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

And if I have prophetic powers (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose),

and understand all the secret truths and mysteries and possess all knowledge,

and if I have [sufficient] faith so that I can remove mountains,

but have not love (God’s love in me) I am nothing (a useless nobody).

Even if I dole out all that I have [to the poor in providing] food,

and if I surrender my body to be burned or in order that I may glory,

but have not love (God’s love in me), I gain nothing.

Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy,

is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.

It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride);

it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly.

Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking;

it is not touchy or fretful or resentful;

it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].

It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness,

but rejoices when right and truth prevail.

Love bears up under anything and everything that comes,

is ever ready to believe the best of every person,

its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances,

and it endures everything [without weakening].

Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end].

As for prophecy (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose),

it will be fulfilled and pass away; as for tongues, they will be destroyed and cease;

as for knowledge, it will pass away [it will lose its value and be superseded by truth].

PLEASE ASK JESUS TO HELP YOU LOVE OTHERS

ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD,

NOT THE WORLD,

EVERY DAY!
