“Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13
This month we’ve taken an in-depth look at faith. We’ve had thoughts and different perspectives shared. It’s been a learning and growing experience for all of us (I hope). All that’s left is the rest of our lives. Which brings me to 1 Corinthians 13. This passage is better known as the “love chapter”, but faith has a lot to do with love, and hope as well.
One of the most important aspects of faith is learning how to love each other. Through having faith in each other and learning how to love each other better, we’re building both love and faith in our lives.
Faith has a huge amount of hope in it. Without hope some situations in life would crush our faith, as well as us. Hope keeps our faith going another day, to the day when we might get the answer we’ve been believing in.
But why is love the most important? Because when you have a crisis of faith or loss of hope love still remains. Which is really the good news, because you don’t have to have all the answers, believe all the time or be the most hopeful person in the world. Love, hope and faith all support each other and create a great network that help us live our lives.
The question becomes are you going to let faith, hope and love help you in your life journey? Take life one day at a time knowing that you have faith, hope and love there to support you every day no matter what.
