This is an old photo, but I saw it today and it ramainded me of the most important thing in life. We can do and be so many things but if we don’t have love we are nothing.
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If 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 do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails… 1 Corinthians 13:1-8
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

... set his heart to study the Law of the Lord, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules... Ezra 7:10
