Faith, Hope, & Love (1 Corinthians 13)

with Ron Deal | August 25, 2020

Philosophers like Aristotle have touted a list of virtues they say promote human flourishing. But what they really promote is the self. Faith, hope, and love make you look away from yourself toward God and others. With God's virtues you become less self-centered, not more. So, in your home is your faith in yourself? Do you demand love and attention from others? If so, turn up and out. Put your faith and hope in God and love Him and your family with your whole heart. This is how we flourish.
