In this morning’s passage, Colin Adams shows how Paul corrects the Corinthian’s wrong valuation of Spiritual gifts. The Corinthians prized the ability to talk in a language that was foreign to most, if not all, of the other believers above all other gifts because of the kudos it gave them. Paul points out that was wrong on two counts. Firstly, because it was selfish and not loving. Secondly, because whatever message it contained couldn’t be understood, it did nothing to build up the church. Paul teaches them that the briefest of clear messages to build up the church was worth much more than an abundance of words in a foreign language.
