Faith, Hope & Charity

"Challenging times require greater spiritual power." (3)

FAITH

"Faith is much more than passive belief. You express your faith through action - by the way you live." (2)


"Faith is a principle of power." (1)

"Elder Bruce R. McConkie taught: 'Faith is a gift of God bestowed as a reward for personal righteousness. It is always given when righteousness is present, and the greater the measure of obedience to God's laws the greater will be the endowment of faith.' If we desire more faith, we must be more obedient." (3)

"Faith requires an attitude of exact obedience, even in the small, simple things." (3)

"Faith and fear cannot coexist. One gives way to the other." (3)

HOPE


"When we have hope, we trust God's promises." (2)


"Hope is manifest in confidence, optimism, enthusiasm, and patient perseverance." (1)

"Hope has the power to fill our lives with happiness." (4)

"Hope is a gift of the Spirit." (4)

"We grow in our ability to 'abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost,' as we more perfectly live the gospel." (4)

CHARITY


"Charity is a gift from God." (1)


"Charity, like faith, leads to action." (1)

"Nothing you do makes much of a difference if you do not have charity." (5)

"Love is the greatest of all the commandments - all others hang upon it. It is our focus as followers of the living Christ. It is the one trait that, if developed, will most improve our lives." (5)

These are some quotes that I really liked. We found them while discussing "faith, hope & charity" in FHE last night. Our resources were


1 - Preach My Gospel

2 -True to the Faith

and three conference talks
3 - "Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ," Elder Kevin W. Pearson, April 2009
4 - "The Infinite Power of Hope," President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, October 2008
5 - "The Great Commandment," Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin, October 2007
