"a way according to excellence"
“But now let me show you a way of life that is best of all"
[1 Corinthians 12:31 NLT]
"a way according to excellence!"
The Greek behind the English translation –
“a way that is best of all”
"We value excellence, whether in ourselves or in others. We enjoy excellent art or delight in watching an excellent athlete. Many of our workplaces expect excellence, and some, like mine, specifically mention excellence among our fundamental values. It is surely right for Christians to seek to be excellent, to develop our skills and talents to their full potential. But there is one kind of excellence we are to prize above all others, and that is excellence in love." Mark O. Roberts
Further Thoughts For Transformation:
"Eagerly desire the greater gifts.
And now I will show you the most excellent way".
[1 Corinthians 12:31NIV]
Though spiritual gifts matter, and though they are to be desired, they are not what we should seek most in life. Rather, spiritual gifts are the fruit of a life lived according to excellence. Mark O. Roberts
