In his letter to the Corinthian church Paul says that love is the greatest of all virtues. This article gives some reasons why this is so. In the famous passage in 1 Corinthians 13: 1 - 7 Paul the apostle extols the virtues of Christian love:
If I speak with tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feel the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endure all things. 1 Corinthians 13: 1 - 7
