  • I Corinthians 12:28-13:7
  • I Corinthians 12:28 – “Helps” and “administrations” wouldn’t necessarily be miraculous gifts. “Administrations” is translated from a word meaning “guides” or “guidance.”  The meaning here could just be referring to work like what elders and deacons do.
  • I Corinthians 12:31 – Some spiritual gifts were evidently better than others, but love is better than the best of the gifts.
  • I Corinthians 13:4 – Love never brags and shows arrogance, like the Pharisee praying (Luke 18:10-14). Love exhibits the attitude shown in Matthew 23:8.
  • I Corinthians 13:5 – Love seeks the welfare of the other person.
  • I Corinthians 13:6 – Love does not rejoice in sin. Surely all have been guilty of this at some point.
  • I Corinthians 13:7 – Love will cause us to believe the best about someone until it is proven that we no longer can.
