And now abide faith, hope, love, these three;
but the greatest of these is love.
1 Cor 13:13
Why is it that love is the greatest?
… why not faith or hope?
Because real love sets the standard!
Love is NOT about me, that’s desire, greed, obsession!
… but LOVE is about value and valuing!
Love is about a value you want to share with others,
… a value you see in others,
because you see a value in yourself!
Only when you recognise the value of self and of others,
… because you value God who is love,
that is when HOPE becomes real, become possible,
… that hope of good for self and for others!
and that is when faith becomes real, becomes alive,
… because you are stepping out on something that is real, LOVE!
When love, the value of self and others becomes real to you,
… that is when you connect to Love Himself,
and Love will work through you touching the lives of others,
… because Love has touched your life!
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
1 John 4:8
And we have known and believed the love that God has for us.
God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God,
and God in him.
1 John 4:16
