Thank you for stopping by for our Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power! I never tire sharing from my heart to yours! I realize that it hasn’t been but a few days since we completed May’s WOW, but I’m trying desperately to come up for air and get back on track after finishing a 300-page curriculum so, would you care to join me for June’s Words of Wisdom and Weapons of Warfare, do we can get ‘er done before June is gone! 🙂

Have you ever acted, or reacted based on an assumption that you found out after the fact was wrong? Isn’t that just the worst? Talk about a huge piece of humble pie. The examples are almost countless. I remember when I was nearly drowning in my insecurities; whenever I would first come around a group of people who I was seeking approval and acceptance from, I just knew that when I walked in the room and they stopped talking, it was because they had been talking about me … and it had to of been all negative!

Or have you ever thought you were well-schooled in a particular subject only to discover you were more un-learned? I could go on and on with examples, and maybe you can share one of yours with me, but for the sake of time, let’s get to our WOW.

Now the words preceding this particular verse are actually speaking about our giftedness that we use in and out of the Church, i.e., wisdom, knowledge — and there is a difference but that’s for a different blog! – faith, gifts of healing … all from the Spirit and then Paul goes on to talk about the greatest gift over all is love/charity. He is also telling us in the preceding verses that our giftedness isn’t perfected until the Perfect One comes. So he’s comparing now to then, meaning present to what is to come. Our gifts are to be used for His glory until His glory comes! In other words, our gifts are but a candle whose flame will be lost in the Rising Son when He comes.

But that’s not all I get from our WOW – which is how His Word is; it is alive and active, meeting us right where we are, thereafter changing us forward. And maybe I’ll be speaking just to myself about this interpretation because of what is going on in my life, especially in a particular situation where I’m left with only assumptions due to a loss of contact and I dare not act on those assumptions.

Join me tomorrow for the conclusion to Never as it seems …
