And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
These three virtues are foundational and equally necessary for the Christian life. Love is not ‘better’ than faith or hope, but greater in the sense of it being more encompassing. God’s love to us activates faith and hope and makes them real in the everyday experience of life. God’s love, from us, can similarly activate faith and hope in other people’s lives
