“God’s definition of what matters is pretty straightforward. He measures our lives by how we love.” (Chan and Yankoski 93)
“But Paul writes that even 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 Cor. 13:2-3 ESV).” (qtd. in Chan and Yankoski 93)
“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. . . . faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. —1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13 ESV” (qtd. in Chan and Yankoski 94)
