a. Paul urged the believers at Corinth to earnestly pursue the more excellent gifts (12:31). He pointed out that spiritual gifts are of profit only when exercised in love. b. According to (13:1–3) why is love so all-important? In what ways does Paul show further that love is greater than all other gifts? (13:8–13) c. In (13:4–7) there are fifteen ways of describing love. Write them in a column and then try to put opposite each an incident in Jesus’ life illustrating it. Then ask yourself: Is this found in me?
