Pristine Grace

1 Cor 13:1-13, (MKJV)
1  Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I have become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal.
2  And though I have prophecies, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so as to move mountains, and do not have charity, I am nothing.
3  And though I give out all my goods to feed the poor , and though I deliver my body to be burned, and have not charity, I am profited nothing.
4  Charity has patience, is kind; charity is not envious, is not vain, is not puffed up;
5  does not behave indecently, does not seek her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil.
6  Charity does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth,
7  quietly covers all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8  Charity never fails. But if there are prophecies, they will be abolished; if tongues, they shall cease; if knowledge, it will be abolished.
9  For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10  But when the perfect thing comes, then that which is in part will be caused to cease.
11  When I was an infant, I spoke as an infant, I thought as an infant, I reasoned as an infant. But when I became a man, I did away with the things of an infant.
12  For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall fully know even as I also am fully known.
13  And now faith, hope, charity, these three remain; but the greatest of these is charity.
