And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

1 Corinthians 13:13

Father, give me faith that moves mountains, hope that reaches to the heavens, and love that never ends. Amen.


1 Corinthians 13
1If I speak in the tongues[a] of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames,[b] but have not love, I gain nothing.

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Oh Heavenly Father, You have placed a lot of food to digest in these few passages, and a need for personal reflection too. God, please open my eyes and heart to those around me, help me to realize how my thoughts, actions, and words affect others. Lord, please forgive me for the times wherein my tongue gets away from me, and I say something so stupid. Sometimes, I am not mindful of those watching and I should always be on my best behavior. Lord, I pray that You will grant me the tools necessary to bring You honor and glory in everything that I do. In Jesus’ Precious Name. Amen.
