If . . .

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels,

but have not love,

I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

And if I have prophetic powers,

and understand all mysteries and all knowledge,

and if I have all faith,

so as to remove mountains,

but have not love,

I am nothing.

If I give away all I have,

and if I deliver up my body to be burned,

but have not love,

I gain nothing.

I Corinthians 13:1-3 (ESV)

  1. I just read this post and had a thought – I don’t want anyone to read anything into it other than what it says 🙂 – it’s not a “coded message” to anyone or anything like that, it’s just such a powerful scripture and one I need to be reminded of in my own life.

  2. It is a very powerful passage, one that is not often reflected on because of its familiarity. We figure we “know” it already.

    But it could be a coded message to the blogosphere at large, where it seems all of the Church’s clanging cymbals have taken up blogging. 😉
