But the Greatest of these is Love
1 If I can recite the Westminster Catechism by memory, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
2 If I have the gift of homeschooling a dozen children, and know how to conjugate Latin verbs; and if I dress modestly and commit to courtship, so as not to cause my brother to stumble, but do not have love, I am nothing.
3 And if I give up my suburban house to homestead, and if I surrender my body to locally-grown, organic food, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails.
