The Most Powerful Gift


1 Corinthians 13

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging 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, but 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, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
LOVE NEVER FAILS. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
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. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

    1. Caroline, I am so glad you thought so. I was inspired to post about love today (I must admit, mostly as a reminder to myself) and what it REALLY looks like. As I read that chapter today, I realized that I am a MAJOR work in progress. Thank God for His love and His example, otherwise I’d be completely lost. Have a beautiful day!

  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this…as usual!! Glory to God and thank you for the reminder of how importatnt and foremost this should be in our lives!!! Blessings, precious heart! Juliana

      1. We ALL need this lesson…I know I always need a good reminder….and YOU are the precious heart!! Oh, I wonder if you truly know the gift God has on the inside of you! What a gift to the body of Christ!!!!! 🙂

  2. Umm hmm. If we can’t do it in love – better to let someone else do it who can. There are enough unloving “Christians” to go around. I don’t need to add to their number. 🙂
