1 Cor 13 — what it tells?
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames,but have not love, I gain nothing.
To my situation it will be:
If I happened to built a church and donate one month of my monthly salary for building, yet have not love, I would not more than a resounding gong that used to welcome the guest to the expensive hotel. The guest come in to the party of the heavenly king but the cymbal stays out.
If I have the strong beliefs of God, yet have not love, I would had better not to sacrifice anything, of it wouldn’t count in the heart of God.
If I called myself a follower of Christ, yet have not able to control my own tongue to say only nice things and stop gossiping around, I would had better buried in the fire. At least, I will be a hero in the eyes of human if not in the eyes of God.
