Tongues have become a contentious issue over the years. “Should we, shouldn’t we, why haven’t you, I have” In 1 Corinthians 14:6 Paul makes a point about tongues that we need to all consider. His statement is “What is the profit of speaking in tongues to the church?” It may give the church prestige, get people excited, or demonstrate that there is something going on that can’t be explained. However, how does the experience help the people to grow. He compares what is happening to an instrument playing that has no meter, it is just noise. God did not send the Holy Spirit to make the world think that as believers we are weird, He sent the Spirit to enable us to do the work that He has called us to do. The purpose of any gift is that of edification of the body, not of the individual. Paul says in verse 19 “I would rather speak five words with my understanding, that I may teach others also, than ten thousand words in a tongue.” Teaching is to be the focus of what happens at church, because that teaching gives direction to our service. Here in Verse 6 Paul shares that through teaching truth is unveiled, understood, unfolded and underlined. may we focus on the clear teaching of the Word of God and allow it to shape our service and focus.
