There is a reason Paul gives so much instruction and clarification regarding the complementary gifts of tongues and interpretation, and why he feels the need to remind the church: "Do not forbid speaking in tongues." Without healthy instruction these gift can seem very subjective or even overly-emotional, and God knows this. In 1 Corinthians 14:1-40 we are given some clear parameters and descriptions of what these gifts are and how to use them. Understanding how the gifts of tongues and interpretation work together to build up the church is of critical importance in welcoming and using them well in the local church.
