1 Cor 13:12-13 - "The Message"

I have this taped to my computer monitor at work; the more I read Eugene Peterson's work, the more I appreciate him:

We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

(1 Cor 13:12-13, The Message)
