1 Corinthians Chapter 13:1-3

If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:1-3
1
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
2
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all 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.
  1. If I do not have love, what have I become?

bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1 Corinthians Chapter 13:8-10

Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

1 Corinthians 13:8-10
8
Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, 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 we prophesy in part.
10
But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
  1. What fails, and what never fails?

    But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.

1 Corinthians Chapter 13:11-13

When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.

1 Corinthians 13:11-13
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 then 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.
