It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; <strong>6 </strong>it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. <strong>7 </strong>It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.</p><p><strong>8 </strong>Love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end. <strong>9 </strong>For we know only in part, and we prophesy only in part; <strong>10 </strong>but when the complete comes, the partial will come to an end. <strong>11 </strong>When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways. <strong>12 </strong>For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. <strong>13 </strong>And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.<br></p><p><br></p><p><br></p><p><em class="ms-rteFontSize-2">Graphic design by Cynthia Friesen Coyle.</em><br></p>
