MORNINGTIME 2746
 
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, (Love), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, (Love), I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor , and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, (Love), it profiteth me nothing. Charity (Love) suffereth long, and is kind; charity (Love) envieth not; charity (Love) vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity (Love) never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, (Love), these three; but the greatest of these is (Love). 1 Corinthians 13: 1-13. Love is an interchangeable word with charity, and this whole chapter is full of what Charity looks like. Everything we know and understand about the Lord, for the Lord is Love, is like looking at something through dark sunglasses. Here on this earth, we see and understand EVERYTHING as if we were looking at it on an old black and white snowy pictured TV with rabbit ears. But when we see Christ, as Pure Love, we will see perfectly, and, WE WILL, BE BLESSED.
