bankrupt without love.

"So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn't want what it doesn't have. Love doesn't strut, doesn't have a swelled head, doesn't force itself on others, isn't always "me first," doesn't fly off the handle, doesn't keep score of the sins of others, doesn't revel when others grovel, takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back, but keeps going to the end" --1st Corinthians 13:7

Is that a a jam-packed verse or what? And while it's so jam-packed with knowledge, it's light and such an easy read. I don't feel like I'm being lectured at or anything. And this is why I love reading the Bible.
