INTRODUCTION TO A NEW BLOG SERIES ON 1 CORINTHIANS 13
What are your talents and gifts? Are you using and sharing them? Are you giving to the poor or making sacrfices for others? If love isn’t a factor all these things mean nothing.
What does love look like? I Corinthians 13 presents us with a vivid account of love, and I am focusing on that passage in my next few blog posts. I’m going to dig into what the passage conveys that love is and isn’t – that love does and doesn’t do, and then I’ll share some of my thoughts.
From what I can tell, love is what matters most. It supersedes even faith and hope in the roll call of the eternal. Even when all the gifts and prophecies and knowledge have ended love will still exist. And it seems that the love actions spoken of here are a result of our spiritual growth – becoming less childish and seeing ourselves for who we truly are.
Trust me, I’m no expert on this. In fact, I’m starting this series to remind me of what love in action looks like. I’ll start with the first attribute – “Patience” – and finish with the last – “Never Fails”. And there’s lots of “good stuff” in between.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
