Faith, Hope or Love? Pick One.

That was a question posed to me recently.  I was told that of the three, which was most important.  Impulsively I went with faith.  Surely it is most important to have unwavering faith in God so that you are able to receive your blessings.  Right?

Wrong.

Instantly I was reminded of 1 Corinthians 13:13. 

 “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

And now that we’re here, let’s not forget what else that chapter has to say about love…

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

How foolish was I!  Ultimately, love is the glue that binds humanity together.  Without love nothing else is able to exist, faith and hope included. 

Today I encourage you all to love a little deeper, be slower to anger and quicker to give the benefit when there exists doubt.
