The apostle Paul was trying to convince the Corinthians, who struggled with wanting the showier gifts, that there was an activity much better than those they desired. That action was to love others. Now it doesn’t mean to be stupid, because some have to be loved from a great distance. It does mean that the gifts of prophecy, tongues and knowledge would have an end in the early church, but love would never have an end.

1 Corinthians 13:8

Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.

If you want a gift that makes an eternal difference, it’s love. If you are a believer, you have it. But the question is do you use it?

Give it some thought.
