God's Big Three: Faith, Hope, And Love by Fenton Moorhead

A SERIES: "GOD'S BIG THREE: FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE"
LOVE: WHAT "NEVER FAILS".

"LOVE"... THE MOST POWERFUL WORD IN HUMAN LANGUAGE.

ALSO THE MOST CONFUSING AND MISUNDERSTOOD.

WE HAVE ONE WORD TO TRY TO DESCRIBE SO MANY THINGS:
"I LOVE... MY WIFE, PIZZA, TO HAVE MY BACK RUBBED,.."
