“And the evening and the morning were the third day.”
King James Version (KJV)

In 1 Corinthians 13:8-13, the Apostle Paul speaks about the relatively short life span of the spiritual gifts, whether prophecies, other tongues, knowledge, etc - gifts that will one day be superseded by 'perfection'. All that the Church has been given has been for its establishment & growth, but we have to confess, the full & complete expression of those gifts has never been fully realized. In the light of Divine Love, these other things will one day become obsolete - Love alone will always stand true & lasting.
In verse 12, Paul speaks about our vision being limited & lacking clarity, as one from those early days looking at himself in an unrefined mirror. But the day will come, says Paul, when our vision & understanding will no longer be limited but clear as our understanding of all things will be made perfect or complete. When will that time be? This is where commentators may differ: suggestions of the complete Word of God given to us (we know more by it now than the early Church which only had the OT Scriptures); others have suggested that when we see Jesus or more likely when we're lifted up from this earthly limiting plane, into the heavenly, when all knowledge of all things will be ours: "then shall I know even as also I am known (by Jesus)."

In every undertaking of our life we have the good and the bad part, so as we have the day and night, and without daylight, there is no way for work.
