It just occurred to me that some gifts, though flashy and useful now in the present, will become useless when we are in heaven in the future. Prophecy has no use or place when we are home and fully in the presence of God.
Therefore, let us focus on the gifts that will echo into eternity and never be useless – the skill of loving each other well.
May we never be so consumed with being important and useful that we lose sight of the need of loving a neighbor well.
http://bible.us/1Cor13.7.NLT “Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless.”
