1 Corinthians 13

I was on Twitter earlier and ran across Kelly Needham's 'site.'
Her status mentioned teaching on 1 Corinthians 13.
Now, I'm sure most of you don't even have to open your Bibles to remember that this chapter in the Bible discusses charity, or love, and its parameters [or...lack thereof].
Reciting verses 4-8 are simple...love is patient, love is kind...but do you remember the first few verses?

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as a sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understanding all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Think about it...
