More love, or more spiritual gifts?

In this blog post Don Carson takes a brief look at 1 Corinthians 13 (often called the love chapter). He concludes:
This text does not say that love is everything and that the other things mentioned--speaking in tongues, the gift of prophecy, an ability to fathom mysteries and all knowledge, a faith that can move mountains, self-denying surrender of all possessions for the sake of the poor, and suffering a martyr's death--are nothing. Rather, it insists that those things are utterly insignificant unless they are accompanied by love. Love does not displace them; its absence renders them pointless and ultimately valueless.
