I Corinthians 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
Preaching and teaching are gifts from God. The best preacher can know the Bible cover to cover and give the best sermons to his congregation but without showing love to them it is just empty words. A preacher shows his love by praying for his church, caring about their problems and allowing God to have control of his sermons.
Teachers can have large Sunday school classes but if they teach the class only what they want to hear then it means nothing. A preacher should show love the same as the preacher by allowing God to be in control. Whatever you do in the service of the Lord be sure you do it with love and allow God to be in control.
