“But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.”
King James Version (KJV)
12:31 Ye covet earnestly the best gifts - And they are worth your pursuit, though but few of you can attain them. But there is a far more excellent gift than all these; and one which all may, yea, must attain or perish.
1Co 12:31 Covet earnestly the best gifts. The highest spiritual gifts. See 1Co 14:12. I show to you a more excellent way. There is something still better than these which all may possess. This best of all things is shown in the next chapter.
