*700 Love In Action - Poem by John Knight
I might be a great Communicator
But without Love I am just a big noise
I might be a cutting edge Scientist
But without Love I am just a big bang
I might be a very religious man
But without Love I am a hypocrite
I might be a well known philanthropist
But without Love it amounts to nothing
I might become a 'Martyr for the Cause'
But without Love I have wasted my Life.
Love is patient and Love is kind
Love is never jealous or proud
Love is never selfish or rude
Love is unhappy with badness
Love is happy with godliness
Love is displeased with conceit
Love is pleased with humility
Love keeps no record of mistakes
Love keeps a record of nice things
Love never fails - it is eternal.
This poem is based on an extract from a letter written by the Christian Philosopher Paul of Tarsus - in AD 52 - to the Christian Community in Corinth; a Greek city and capital of the Roman Province of Achaia.
