Our Elders Quorum lesson this last Sunday was about faith, hope and charity. The instructor had some great thoughts about these three attributes and related them to a scripture.
Faith = What
Hope = Why
Charity = How
See Ether 12: 4
Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with asurety bhope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which chope cometh of dfaith, maketh an eanchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in fgood works, being led to gglorify God.
We see that faith is what we are hoping for, what we believe will happen if we do good works. Faith is an action, we put forth effort. (See Bible Dictionary: Faith) Hope is why we believe, and charity is how we believe. We do good, we love our neighbors, we do things that glorify God.
