Bible Gateway. Retrieved The New York Times. Retrieved 23 December We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I abandoned my childhood, I put these ways behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Giovanni's room. New York: Dell.

Seven virtues in Christian ethics. Christian philosophy. First Epistle to the Corinthians. Love gives because it loves to give, not out of the sense of praise it can have from showing itself off. Sometimes the people who seem to work the hardest at love are the ones the furthest from it. They do things many would perceive as loving, yet they do them in a manner that would parade itself.

Love… is not puffed up : To be puffed up is to be arrogant and self-focused. Both to parade itself and to be puffed up are simply rooted in pride. Among Christians, the worst pride is spiritual pride. Pride of face is obnoxious, pride of race is vulgar, but the worst pride is pride of grace!

Bible Summary and Study on Love: 1 Corinthians 13

William Carey is thought by many to be the founder of the modern missionary movement. Today, Christians all over the world know who he was and honor him. He came from a humble place; he was a shoe repairman when God called him to reach the world. Carey, I hear you once were a shoemaker!

His love showed itself in not having a big head about himself. Love… does not behave rudely : Where there is love, there will be kindness and good manners. Love… does not seek its own : Paul communicates the same idea in Romans in honor giving preference to one another. Also, Philippians carries the same thought: Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. This is being like Jesus in a most basic way, being an others-centered person instead of a self-centered person.

That man is no Christian who is solicitous for his own happiness alone; and cares not how the world goes, so that himself be comfortable. Love… is not provoked : We all find it easy to be provoked or to become irritated with those who are just plain annoying. Moses was kept from the Promised Land because he became provoked at the people of Israel Numbers One writer tells of a tribe in Polynesia where it was customary for each man to keep some reminders of his hatred for others.

These reminders were suspended from the roofs of their huts to keep alive the memory of the wrongs, real or imagined. Most of us do the same. Love… does not rejoice in iniquity : It is willing to want the best for others, and refuses to color things against others. Instead, love rejoices in the truth. Love can always stand with and on truth, because love is pure and good like truth. All things : We might have hoped Paul would have chosen any phrase but this! All things covers everything! We can all bear some things , we can all believe some things , we can all hope some things , and we can all endure some things.

But God calls us farther and deeper into love for Him, for one another, and for a perishing world. Love denies herself, sacrifices herself, that she may win victories for God, and hers shall be no tinsel crown. Love… bears all things : The word for bears can also be translated covers. There are busybodies abroad who never spy out a fault in a brother but they must hurry off to their next neighbour with the savoury news, and then they run up and down the street as though they had been elected common criers.

It is by no means honorable to men or women to set up to be common informers. Yet I know some who are not half so eager to publish the gospel as to publish slander. Love stands in the presence of a fault, with a finger on her lip. A hurtful particle intrudes itself into its shell, and this vexes and grieves it. It cannot eject the evil, and what does it do but cover it with a precious substance extracted out of its own life, by which it turns the intruder into a pearl. Oh, that we could do so with the provocations we receive from our fellow Christians, so that pearls of patience, gentleness, long-suffering, and forgiveness might be bred within us by that which has harmed us.

Love… believes all things : We never believe a lie, but we never believe evil unless the facts demand it. We choose to believe the best of others. Love… hopes all things : Love has confidence in the future, not pessimism. Love… endures all things : Most of us can bear all things , and believe all things , and hope all things , but only for a while! The greatness of agape love is it keeps on bearing, believing, and hoping. It destroys enemies by turning them into friends. We could replace the word love with the name Jesus and the description would make perfect sense.

We can easily say, Jesus suffers long and is kind; Jesus does not envy… and make it through the whole chapter. We can measure our spiritual maturity by seeing how it sounds when we put our name in place of the word love. There is a reason why Paul put this chapter in the midst of his discussion of spiritual gifts. Paul wants the Corinthian Christians to remember that giftedness is not the measure of maturity, the display of love is.

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.

Love never fails : Paul addresses the over-emphasis the Corinthian Christians had on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, the gifts of the Holy Spirit are appropriate for the present time, but they are not permanent. They are imperfect gifts for an imperfect time. Though some that believe the miraculous gifts ceased with the apostles say it refers to the completion of the New Testament, they are wrong. Virtually all commentators agree that which is perfect is fulfilled when we are in the eternal presence of the Perfect One, when we are with the Lord forever, either through the return of Christ or graduation to the eternal.

The ancient Greek word for perfect is telos. Considering the way the New Testament uses telos in other passages, it certainly seems to speak about the coming of Jesus 1 Corinthians , , James , Revelation , , , and W hether there are tongues, they will cease : Many who believe the miraculous gifts ended with the apostles such as John MacArthur claim since the verb will cease is not in the passive, but in the middle voice, it could be translated, tongues will stop by themselves.

Their analysis sounds scholarly, but is disregarded by virtually all scholars of ancient Greek. Even if this translation is correct, it does nothing to suggest when tongues will cease. John Calvin thought the will cease spoke of the eternal state.

It begins, indeed, at death, because then we put off many weaknesses along with the body. W hether there are tongues, they will cease : In his use of will fail and will cease and will vanish away , Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, is not trying to say that prophecies , tongues , and knowledge have different fates. He is simply writing well, saying the same thing in three different ways.

They will end, but love never fails. True, the verb with prophecies is in the passive voice believers are the implied agents , while the verb with tongues is interpreted as the active voice. The difference is only a stylistic change and nothing more. Who can listen to a preacher drone on and on, and say they only prophesy in part? It seems like a lot more than a part! 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.

The Love Chapter - Life, Hope & Truth

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. When I was a child : Childish things are appropriate for children, and the gifts are appropriate for our present time.
