1 Corinthians 13:1-3 NLT
If 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. 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
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.
