use it according to the standard of one’s faith; if service, in service;
if teaching, in teaching; if exhorting, in exhortation;
giving, with generosity;
leading, with diligence;
showing mercy, with cheerfulness. Love must be without hypocrisy. Detest evil; cling to what is good. Show family affection to one another with brotherly love. Outdo one another in showing honor.

you will be heaping fiery coals on his head. Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good.

If I speak human or angelic languages
but do not have love,
I am a sounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy
and understand all mysteries
and all knowledge,
and if I have all faith
so that I can move mountains
but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I donate all my goods to feed the poor,
and if I give my body in order to boast
but do not have love, I gain nothing.read more.
Love is patient, love is kind.
Love does not envy,
is not boastful, is not conceited, does not act improperly,
is not selfish, is not provoked,
and does not keep a record of wrongs. Love finds no joy in unrighteousness
but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.
But as for prophecies,
they will come to an end;
as for languages, they will cease;
as for knowledge, it will come to an end. For we know in part,
and we prophesy in part. But when the perfect comes,
the partial will come to an end. When I was a child,
I spoke like a child,

but then face to face.
Now I know in part,
but then I will know fully,
as I am fully known. Now these three remain:
faith, hope, and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
Therefore I, the prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk worthy of the calling you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, accepting one another in love,
