1 Corinthians 13: 8-13

"Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

1 Corinthians 13: 8-13


Those are some of my very very favorite words in the Bible. Recently I've been realizing how...silly it is to argue about details when its the main points that are most important. We only see in part now anyway.
Everyone has a heart. No matter how broken or rotten it is it's there. 

Faith, hope and love.

If someone knows those three things...loves them...and those are what will  remain at the end of time; what about trying to help the growth of those three things in a persons heart, instead of getting off course with details...God is love. I'm not saying details aren't important. Its just I'm a very tidy person, and I tend to over-organize, and over-categorize. And I think it can be very important sometimes to not over-do things. 

Arguing doesn't do anything good. Listening does. Discussing does, just be so careful to not get off track.
I know I'm probably not making much sense. I'm just trying to sort out a thought in my head.  :)
