Love Extravagantly

8-10 Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.

13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

– 1 Corinthians 13:8-10

The Message Version (MSG)


8-10 愛是不止息的。動人的話有一天會過去,用方言禱告的能力會停止,人的智慧也有窮盡。我們對真理的認識只有一部分,對神的理解也不完全。但當神的完全來到時,我們的不完全就會消失……

13 但就目前來說,在神的完全來到以先,有三件事我們必須做到,才能達至完全:恆切地信靠神,持守堅定的盼望,還要毫不吝惜地彼此相愛。而這三樣當中,以彼此相愛為最重要的一樣。
