"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
*Life Application Note: In morally corrupt Corinth, love had become a mixed-up term with little meaning. Today people are still confused about love. Love is the greatest of all human qualities, and it is an attribute of God himself (1 John 4:8). Love involves unselfish service to others; to show it gives evidence that you care. Faith is the foundation and content of God's message; hope is the attitude and focus; love is the action. When faith and hope are in line, you are free to love completely because you understand how God loves.*
Without faith, I don't have hope. Without faith and hope, I cannot love. I cannot love myself or others. That's the thing I struggle with most - loving myself and forgiving myself.
