Insight to the Word

Part of Paul’s purpose in 1 Corinthians 12–14 seems to be to address the belief among some believers in Jesus that those with the ability to speak in tongues have a higher spiritual status than those without that gift. What it means to “speak in the tongues . . . of angels” (13:1) is greatly debated, but what’s clear from 1 Corinthians 12–14 is that the contributions of all believers are equally important. What matters most is that we value and serve each other in the “most excellent way” (12:31) of love.
