The lyrics of John McCutcheon’s “Children of Abraham” got me thinking about 1 Corinthians 13 and James 2:17. The lyric was simple:
Faith without measure
Hope without end
It is love will make the nations bend.
Paul was clear the love is greater than faith or hope. James was convinced that faith without works - love in action- is dead.
Even when our faith, our trust in God, wavers, we can act with love. Even when hope is gone, we can act with love.
