Abstract

The most important three things in the world are faith, hope, and charity. Faith is not the power to bend God’s will to ours, but rather the power to align our will with His. Answers do not always come in the time frame and way we expect. Hope is not just a positive attitude; it is a surrender and trust in God and His promises. The importance of charity can scarcely be overstated; it has been called the greatest of all things, without which we are nothing. We should listen and seek to understand others. We should give to and seek to serve others. We should care for and love others.

Keywords: faith, hope, charity, trust, God, listen, serve, care, love, world
