More Excellent

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. 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. 

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.

1 Corinthians 13

Love is patient. Love is kind.
It does not envy. It does not boast. It is not proud.

It does not dishonor others. It is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil. But rejoices with the truth.
It always protects. Always trusts. Always hopes. Always perseveres.

Love is a more Excellent Way.
