“Let us learn from Paul the lesson of a dauntless faith.
“Far too many people have only fair-weather faith, but no faith for stormy weather. They build their ship of Christian faith only for smooth seas and clear skies; then, when the tempest rises on the sea of life, the poor vessel goes to pieces and sinks despairingly in the waves.
“It may be asked why love is superior even to faith, as Paul teaches in his great Corinthian chapter. There are fundamental reasons: First, love is the result of faith; second, faith is only a means, while love is an end in itself.
