For whatsoever things were written aforetime we written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. —Romans 15:4
Hope is critical to faith and charity. When disobedience, disappointment, and procrastination erode faith, hope is there to uphold our faith. When frustration and impatience challenge charity, hope braces our resolve and urges us to care for our fellowmen even without expectation of reward. The brighter our hope, the greater our faith. The stronger our hope, the purer our charity. —Dieter F. Uchtdorf
