Unconditional love Poem

And just to finish off this month’s theme of unconditional love, here’s my favourite poem!

Where do you think it’s from?

If I speak in the tongues of men and angels,

but have not love,

I have become sounding brass or a tinkling symbol.

And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge,

and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains,

but have not love, I am nothing.

love is kind,

it is not jealous,

love does not boast,

it is not inflated.

It is not discourteous,

it is not selfish,

it is not irritable,

it does not enumerate the evil.

It does not rejoice over the wrong, but rejoices in the truth

It covers all things,

it has faith for all things,

it hopes in all things,

it endures in all things.

Love never falls in ruins;

but whether prophecies, they will be abolished; or

tongues, they will cease; or

knowledge, it will be superseded.

But now remains

faith, hope, love,

these three;

but the greatest of these is love.
