1 Corinthians 13
New International Version (NIV)
:13 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude to others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Things I love: God, His Son Jesus Christ, My husband, my children,my dog, the word of God and his people. I enjoy writing about the Bible as well as reading it, painting, cooking and enjoying life. I am thankful God has smiled on me and has been gracious to me.
God sent his son so I could be saved, and forgiven. I was not worthy yet Jesus Christ died for my sins. He enabled me to receive power from on high. I am and will be eternally grateful.

    I admire you so much for your painting skills. 1 Cor 13 is my favorite passage from the Bible.

  • Thank you so much, Lori. That means so much to me especially when I second guess myself. And yes the love verses in Corinthians as well as Romans are also favorites of mine as well. Hugs…♥
