Faith, Hope, and Love

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes always perseveres. Love never fails.
But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will come to pass away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
Now we see but a poor reflection; then we shall see face to face.
Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am full known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
(I CORINTHIANS 13: 4-13)

I read a quote once that said "You can't fully love a person until you have stopped hating the rest of the world."
Hate is so easy to feel. It can come upon you faster than you know how to stop it.
Which do you think is more powerful, hate or love? If Hitler could cause so much uproar with his hate, how much uproar do you think Christians could cause with their love?
Show someone your love for them today. It doesn't have to be a big thing. But show it. See how much better your day will go when you spread the love!
