If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angles, but didn't love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If 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. If I gave everything I had 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. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But LOVE will last forever!
1 Corinthians 13: 1-3; 8
