Hope in Love

“Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth


.It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”


1 Corinthians 13:6-7 (NIV)



I spotted something in the notes in my Bible. I never realized it before. Hope is the attitude and a focus of God’s message to the world. It is one of the ingredients necessary for us to understand how God loves his children.

God wants us to receive His love and grow in it. He watches over us and guides us through difficult times because He has plans for us.

The apostle Paul tells us love always hopes. Because God loves us, we should be careful not to put down another person. We can inject hope into our world by refraining from dwelling on the bad things that happen. People need to hear positive thoughts about the world.

If we hear and try ideas about how to protect ourselves from harm, we may have a better outcome for our lives. These precautions keep us safe. God shows us how to incorporate them into our daily lives.

  1. Yes, I agree. I learned recently that hope is the precursor to faith. We can't act in faith without hope--it's important!

    Love you,
