1 Corinthians 13:8
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
All things will pass away, even the gifts God gives, but not love, for everything can fail except love. Love is what drove God to create. It is what caused Him to give, and to take away. It is His measure of things and His motive for things. It is His reason for sacrificing Himself for those who hurt Him. It is His justification for forgiving them, and saving them. Love never fails.
