Charity Never Fails

1 Corinthians 13:8-10 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

 

The only love that never fails is God’s love. And as Christians, we need to be like Christ. We need to love in a way that never fails. Prophecies of man can never be 100% accurate. Only the words that come from God can be relied on with full confidence. Knowledge comes and goes. God is the one who blesses people with knowledge.  Knowledge and prophecies are only in part. God has not revealed to us all knowledge. Just look at the many un-answered questions in science.

This section of verses shows humanity. We do not know everything and we never will. One thing we can know without a shadow of doubt is God’s never failing love.
