Love is the most important thing on earth.
If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don't love then, I'm nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. But,
If I speak God's Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day,
and if I have faith that says to a mountain, "Jump," and it jumps, but I still don't love then, I am nothing.
If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don't love then, I have gotten nowhere.
So, no matter what I say, no matter what I believe, and no matter what I do, I'm bankrupt if I am without love.
