But the greatest of these
νυνὶ δὲ μένει πίστις, ἐλπίς, ἀγάπη, τὰ τρία ταῦτα· μείζων δὲ τούτων ἡ ἀγάπη.
Paul said that now these three (τὰ τρία ταῦτα), faith (πίστις), hope (ἐλπίς), and love (ἀγάπη) abide (νυνὶ δὲ μένει). But the greatest of these is love (μείζων δὲ τούτων ἡ ἀγάπη). Paul concluded his comments about love by pointing out that faith, hope, and love continue, but Christian agape love had the greatest enduring quality as the eternal love with God. Human faith and hope would turn into eternal divine love with God. There was no question that love conquers all. Love was the greatest of the three great human and theological virtues of faith, hope, and love because of its eternal quality. Do you value love as the great gift of life?
