List of valiant things.

If I have the gift of prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give away all my possessions to charity, and if I surrender my body so that I may glory, but do not have love, it does me no good.

-- 1 Corinthians 13:2-3

The world would think this was quite an impressive list, and Paul meant it to be. No one on earth could brag about these things, and if they could, they would be not worthy of note, without love. The devil has some of those things but they do him no good because he doesn’t have love. This is called the love chapter, because it calls us to have love change the way we treat other people. Our life on earth is really about our interactions with other people and with God.
