Qui Habet Maiorem Charitatem

Here is today's distich by Michele Verinus:

Qui Habet Maiorem Charitatem
Cui maior caritas, debetur gloria maior;
Quantus amor fuerit, praemia tanta feret.

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. There is only one word in this poem that is not on the DCC list:

cāritas, cāritātis f. - dearness, esteem, love, charity

amor -ōris m.: love
dēbeo -ēre dēbuī dēbitum: owe, be obliged
fero ferre tulī lātum: bear, carry
glōria -ae f.: glory, fame
habeo -ēre -uī habitum: have, hold
māior -ius: greater, older
praemium -iī n.: bounty, reward
quantus -a -um: how great? as great
qui, quae, quod: who, which, what; quis quid: who? what? which?
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
tantus -a -um: so great, so much; tantum, only
