“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.”
1 Corinthians 13:1-3 ESV
It’s imperative to remember that the chapter of love is in the context of church relations, not marriage and certainly not about Christians’ disposition toward the outside world.
Nevertheless, the apostle makes it clear that if individuals do not have love for their fellow Christians then everything else they do is in vain.
