Hope Unswervingly

1 Corinthians 13:13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

Consummation: noun, perfection, fufillment

Unswerving: adverb, turning aside abruptly in movement or direction; deviate suddenly from the straight or direct course.

Extravagantly: adverb, turning aside abruptly in movement or direction; deviate suddenly from the straight or direct course.

Love: verb, to have love or affection for another person; be in love.

I love this expression of trusting God steadily, having hope that is unswerving, and loving extravagantly. What an awesome use of big words in this Message. I love it!

Dear God, You are a God who love us extravagantly. Help us to do the same. Forgive us when we lose hope and shelve love. Thank you for bringing this verse to us today. Help us to ponder it and live it! Amen.
