Differing knowledge, same love

“For our knowledge is imperfect,
and so is our prophesying.”
(I Corinthians 13:9 WEY)

Even to Paul it must have been unthinkable that all believers’ imperfect knowledge could coincide in every detail, so that we would have no disagreements and so that each of us would receive exactly the same correction in glory.

Surely Paul implies that my imperfect knowledge
is different from your imperfect knowledge,
but that in spite of disagreement, love must
still characterize and unite us.

Even if “though I may be wrong, I am not as wrong as you,” I am in the worst possible wrong if I therefore do not love you, or if I refuse to fellowship with you because your imperfect knowledge is more imperfect than mine.
