1 CORINTHIANS: CHAPTER 13
A MORE EXCELLENT WAY~
1.) Though I speak with tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass, clanging cymbol.
2.) And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understanding all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have faith, , so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
3.) And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
4.) Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up.;
5.) does not behave rudely, does not seek it's own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6.) does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7.) bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8.) Love never fails. But weather there are prophecies they will fail, they will fail; whether there are tongues they will cease, whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
9.) For we know in part and prophesy in part.
10.) But when that which is perfect has come, than that which is in part will be done away.
11.) When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12.) For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but than face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
13.) And now abide faith, hope, love these three, but the greatest of these is love.
Are you ready to cross the bridge of love and compassion?
