“Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away, ; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away” (1 Corinthians 13:8).
Love trumps all gifts because it is the only one that lasts. When all others have ceased love remains. Don’t miss the point of Paul’s declaration. Instead of quibbling about the question of whether or not God still, today, uses unknown tongues to communicate a spiritual message the greater question is this: “Are you and I using our known tongue to communicate the message of God’s love?” It’s something to think about and, more especially, it’s something to talk about.
