Love<a href="https://assets.mennonites.org/PublishingImages/2021/1Corinthians13_13.jpg">Download image</a>https://www.mennonitemission.net/resources/worship resources/scripture graphics/716/LoveLove1 Corinthians 13:1-13<p><strong>1 </strong>If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. <strong>2 </strong>And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. <strong>3 </strong>If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.</p><p><strong>4 </strong>Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant <strong>5 </strong>or rude. 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>
