Staying power

All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love. I Cor. 12b-13

Much of what we do, even with Godly motives, involves solving problems, performing tasks, meeting goals, and making plans. Our results-oriented brains are not equipped right now to understand how or why three intangibles trump measurable accomlishments. Even more than doing good things well, lasting spiritual results happen when we are faithful, hopeful, loving people.

Lord, show me how to let faith, hope, and love motivate my choices and behaviors.
