The Greatest Of These Is Love

No matter what you do for God and for others, it is of no value unless you are motivated by God's love. God is love and just as we will never completely understand the "ALL" of God, we will never understand the illuminating power of loving charity and the intricacies within.

Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus showed His love for others by blessing and serving the poor, the sick, and the distressed.

Only when we finish our pilgrimage here on earth will we behold the power and glory of Love.  God desires to school us in our lives exercising and practicing His Charity in all sincereness.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us ~ Romans 5:8
