And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. 1 Corinthians 13:13 (KJV)
Faith, hope, and charity are important virtues of Christianity. By faith we believe that God exists, hope gives us expectation and drive to move on, and charity or love is a physical demonstration of an inner work. Charity or love is the greatest, because through charity or love faith and hope makes sense to us. A very good example is the coming of Jesus Christ to the world to redeem man from sin; this is an outward manifestation of the love of God which makes sense of our faith and hope in God.
