With Love –
- I am patient
- I am kind
- I am not jealous
- I am not boastful
- I am not proud (1 Corinthians 4:1)
- I behave
- I seek not my own
- I am not easily ticked off (angered)
- I think no evil (1 Corinthians 4:5)
- I rejoice not in sin
- I rejoice in the truth (1 Corinthians 4:6)
- I bear, believe, hope for and endure all things (1 Corinthians 4:7)
for LOVE never fails (1 Corinthians 4:8).
Without Love –
- I AM nothing (1 Corinthians 13:2)
- I gain nothing (1 Corinthians 13:3)
Are you with or without Love? Am I with or without Love?
1 Corinthians 13:1-8 (KJV)
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 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, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
