“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
In today’s verse, we read about a portion of the first letter of the apostle Paul to the church in Corinth. Paul, after explaining earlier in the same chapter, how useless it is to express spiritual gifts without love, he finishes by saying “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
Faith, hope and love are so essential to the Christian life, we cannot talk about Christianity without these three virtues, however love is the greatest. The agape love for God and for our neighbor is the first virtue which should be at the core of everything we do, as God is love (1 John 4:8).
May faith, hope and love never lack in our lives.
