Tongues of Men and Angels

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 1 Corinthians 13:1

This relates to an expression taken from the theater. Actors spoke into a brass jar for an echoing effect, using it as a microphone to represent the “gods speaking.

The tinkling cymbal actually refers to crashing copper sheets which were shaken like a rug to
represent thunder. In other words, if I don’t have love, I’m like an actor or an imposter.

Character is important, not just words. And Christ modeled true character and love by his actions.
