Universal Trios

Just as the physical universe is dependent upon trios, a happy and fulfilling spiritual life is built on the trio of faith, hope and love.

The physical universe that we know is made of  space, time and matter. Space is made of height, length and width. Time is divided into past, present and future, while matter can be a solid, a liquid or a gas.  A geometric plane must have three lines or it falls apart.  All living creatures live on the land, in the sea, or in the air.

In the same way we all need faith, hope and love to have a healthy spiritual and mental life. Everything we do in life requires faith.  We have faith in chairs, cars, the sun, and sometimes other people. The opposite of faith is fear. Unfounded fears keep us from living fully. People with agrophobia fear leaving their home. People with mysophobia obsessively wash their hands. Many of us fear speaking in front of crowds.  Others are limited because they fear airplanes travel.

Hope is what keeps us moving and motivated, even in the midst of inevitable disappointments. We have goals and aspirations; we look forward to vacations,  gatherings and celebrations with family and friends. When we lose hope we become discouraged and, eventually, we no longer have a reason to live.

But the greatest attribute is love. Without love, our faith and hope are empty and meaningless. It is true that love makes the world go around. What is love? That word covers a diversity of states, feelings and attitudes, but the basic meaning as defined by Wikipedia is “an emotion of strong affection and personal attachment.” It manifests as actions based on kindness, compassion or affection. I Corinthians 13:7 says that “love never fails.” How can this be true? We all know that human love is weak and can fail. Human love does fail, but the love that comes from God never fails because God is love. He is the very definition of love itself . His love is not based on feelings. His love is unconditional and sacrificial. He proved it through His actions.

Romans 5:8   John 3:16    I John 4:7-11

I also enjoy reading, writing and spending time with friends and family. I'm a small group leader for Bible Study Fellowship and enjoy attending Buena Park Christian Fellowship. Most of these posts are a result of a lot of reading, listening, thought and experience.
