AUGUST 23

 

And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is loveó1.Cor. 13:13.     

 

 As love is the most excellent thing, so is it the most enduring... for will not faith practically come to an end when we shall see and know thoroughly? And will not hope practically be at an end when we shall reach the fruition of all our hopes and be possessors of the fulness of our Heavenly Fatherís promises? Love, however, will never fail, even as it had no beginning. God is love, and since He was without beginning, so love was without beginning; because it is His character, His disposition; and as He endures forever, so love will endure forever.
