Faith in something is the groundwork for everything.

…a more excellent way:
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profits me nothing.
Love suffers long, and is kind.
Love doesn’t envy.
Love doesn’t vaunt itself, and is not puffed up.
Love doesn’t behave itself unseemly.
Love doesn’t seek not her own, and is not easily provoked.
Love thinks no evil, rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
