LOVE SUFFERS LONG & IS KIND; LOVE DOES NOT ENVY;
LOVE DOES NOT PARADE ITSELF, IS NOT PUFFED UP;
DOES NOT BEHAVE RUDELY, DOES NOT SEEK ITS OWN, IS NOT PROVOKED, THINKS NO EVIL;
DOES NOT REJOICE IN INIQUITY, BUT REJOICES IN THE TRUTH;
BEARS ALL THINGS, BELIEVES ALL THINGS, HOPES ALL THINGS, ENDURES ALL THINGS.
LOVE NEVER FAILS.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-8
