If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Whenever I read verses like this, I cannot deny God and His existence. Who can argue this? For what is there really to gain in this world...I watch my daughter and see that she "gets this" much better then I do. I watch my boys and see the same.
They have that "love" and it is in this I am satisfied.
...and it is then that I say to myself; "self, define love...???" and where else can you go, but to here -
love is patient
love is kind
love does not envy
love does not boast
love is not arrogant
love is not rude
love does not insist on it's own way
love is not irritable
love is not resentful
love does not rejoice in wrongdoing
love rejoices with truth
love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
love never ends
and again...if I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, i.gain.nothing.
