There are many gifts that you may desire. These gifts of the spirit make a difference in the lives of people e.g. gifts of healing, word of wisdom, word of knowledge, etc. - 1 Cor 12:8-10,29-30. Yet scripture acknowledges that love is still the important foundation that is required.
You see the use of these gifts must be governed by the love of God. It is the love of God which causes compassion to rise in you for others. As a result of this compassion you are better able to utilize these gifts for the edification of others, and not for ulterior motives. This ultimately leads you to a life of excellence.
Friend desire to grow in your love walk so that you can fully and appropriately utilize the gifts of the spirit.
