Bible Says Love Is More Important Than Anything Else

The Bible says that love is more important than anything else, even more important than faith.

          "And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all
           mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so
           as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing."
           (1 Corinthians 13:2 RSV)
Here is the entire passage in context . . .
                  The Supreme Importance Of Love
         _____________________________________________________________
       
        1 CORINTHIANS 13 (RSV)
        1
               If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have
               not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
        2
               And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all
               mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so
               as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
        3
               If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be
               burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
        4
               Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful;
        5
               it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its
               own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
        6
               it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.
        7
               Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all
               things, endures all things.
        8
               Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away;
               as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will
               pass away.
        9
               For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is
               imperfect;
        10
               but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.
        11
               When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a
               child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I
               gave up childish ways.
        12
               For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face.
               Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as
               I have been fully understood.
        13
               So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest
               of these is love.
         _____________________________________________________________
       
Why is love so important, more important than anything else? Because God Himself is love.
       1 JOHN 4:7-8 (RSV)
         _____________________________________________________________
       
        7
               Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and
               he who loves is born of God and knows God.
        8
               He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.
