Conflicted conviction

"Conviction is worthless unless it is converted into conduct." (Thomas Carlyle)

In my work, I get to meet a lot of people with deep religious faith. For many of them, their most sincere hope is that their kids grow up to become people having a similar faith.

A question I often ask in reply is this: "What about growing up to be loving? Is that not a greater hope?"

Professing a faith without practicing its highest teaching is worse than not professing a faith at all. Especially if that faith says love is greater than either hope or faith (Paul in 1 Corinthians 13:13).

(Have a great weekend, folks!)
