    Michaela Sisk says:

    Michaela Sisk, Port Macquarie, NSW Australia
    …if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13‬:‭2, 4-7, 13‬ NIV)
