The LOVE Chapter...Verse by Verse

He says,
"Now our knowledge is
partial and incomplete,
and even the gift of prophecy
reveals only part of the whole picture!"
1 Corinthians 13:9 (NLT)

I hear,
"At this point in time
-right now-
what we know is only
a very, very small piece
of a monstrous puzzle;
even people who have the gift
of explaining God's Word
can only reveal a little bit
to such a large puzzle!"
1 Corinthians 13:9 (My Interpretation)

It amazes me that God thinks it is so important for us to understand that the way things are right now will not be so when we are in Heaven.  Right smack in the middle of this lovely, sweet chapter specifically about love, He begins to explain to us the uselessness of these other gifts in light of our Eternal home.

Those who have the gift to explain God's word, get to work, because you will be out of 'that' job when the Savior comes calling you home!  :-)  Then, love can truly abide!

Have a blessed and loving day!
