1 Corinthians 13:4–7
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need.

5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven."
