1 Cor 13:1

“The Lord desires me to call the attention of His people to the thirteenth chapter of First Corinthians. Read this chapter every day, and from it obtain comfort and strength. Learn from it the value that God places on sanctified, heaven-born love, and let the lesson that it teaches come home to your hearts. Learn that Christlike love is of heavenly birth, and that without it all other qualifications are worthless.” (RH July 21, 1904).

"1st Corinthians 13 is a beautiful portion of scripture that instructs us on what love is. Love is not an impulsive emotion but one that requires reasoning. Love though as a word is singular it is filled with a number of entities. Some of these entities are referenced in the chapter and give is a blue print on how to exhibit love."

In a past post on this topic I used this chapter to outline what love is? For this post take a similar approach however I will delve into some word from Ellen White in the hopes of strengthening understanding on this topic (Please note I will be looking at verses 1-7 and 13 in the next few posts.

1 Corinthians 13King James Version (KJV)
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

Have you heard of pots and pans being banged by children? Imagine if anytime you opened your mouth to speak that was the sound that came out. How dreadful! The verse suggests if your eloquence is not seasoned with love your merely making a racket a terrible noise.

One thing that is often said at my church is the need to say things in love. I want to add and say that the latter is imperative as a word spoken in love is more likely to be received.

There may be occasions where you will have to deliver a difficult message will use do so in love or as a tinkling cymbal. How to you exercise love through your speech.
