What if I could speak all languages of humans and of angels?
If I did not love others,
I would be nothing more than a noisy gong or clanging cymbal
What if I could prophesy and understand all secrets and all knowledge?
And what if I had faith that moved mountains?
I would be nothing unless I loved others
What if I gave away all that I owned and let myself be burned alive?
I would gain nothing unless I loved others
Love is kind and patient, never jealous, boastful, proud or rude
Love isn’t selfish or quick tempered
Love doesn’t keep a record of wrongs that others do
Love rejoices in the truth but not in evil
Love is always supportive, loyal, hopeful and trusting
Love never fails!
