Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy. For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit. On the other hand, the one who prophesies speaks to people for their upbuilding and encouragement and consolation. The one who speaks in a tongue builds up himself, but the one who prophesies builds up the church.
Would seeking the gift of prophecy over the gift of tongues be an act of agape love in action. Are the gifts an either or? But I do think that I should pursue all to the extent needed to enable me to do my part in building up the church.
