Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 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. 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 Corinthians 13:1-3
Love is the “more excellent way” of 1 Corinthians 12:31. Love is greater than the “best gifts” we so often earnestly desire. Love excels tongues, prophecy, Spiritual understanding and knowledge, feats of faith, and all giving. If we have not love, we are nothing.
Earnestly desire Spiritual gifts. But seek, more than anything, to excel in love.
