Although some people speak of The Lord
(But have not charity)
Some may even have the gift of prophecy
Understand all mysteries; all knowledge
All faith to remove mountains (problems)
(But have not charity)

But if one has all those things a person would have
(But have not charity)
Than he has nothing! He is nothing!
So he gives food to the poor,
And gives himself as offering
(But have not charity)
He profieth nothing. He is nothing!

Suffereth long; and is kind ~~~~~
Envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself
Not puffed up, does not behave itself unseemly
Seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked
Thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity (sin)
Rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things
Believeth all things, in Christ, hope all things
Endureth all things; never faileth ~~~~~

Faith, Hope,(charity - which is the greatest)

But Have Not Charity
charity is not just good works we do it is in the heart and Jesus sees what is in the hearts of men. Those who claim the Lord thier own but thier hearts are filled with hate they have not charity. true words.
