Why Commit to me? Because without me, you are nothing. Without me, your words, knowledge and faith will do you no good whatever.
I am always patient and kind; I am never jealous; I am not boastful or conceited, I am never rude and never seek my own advantage, I do not take offence or store up grievances. I do not rejoice at wrongdoing, but find joy in the truth.
I am always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes.
I will never come to an end, even when all else will be done away with. Now you see me through a glass, darkly; but then you shall see me face to face: Who am I?
