Three Precepts That Count

Updated on September 9, 2017

Faith, that trust which we have each tried to build upon,

The basis for our very sustenance, our lives were begun.

A confidence in our acts, this shown of our own behavior,

That does so mean we have a belief in a heavenly savior.

Hope, to be the trust that we each show, in its confidence,

That quality of every life, this of our own design's essence.

The best of all desires, a product so revealed in a likeness,

An expectation born of the most astute is in all's awareness.

Charity, that defining characteristic, an honorable reflection,

The giving of ourselves, not a taking, the opposing direction.

Blessing others as anyone has been so blessed, as a grace,

A defining trait separating good from evil, of the human race.

Three traits that if followed by all, a way of preserving our world, as we know it.
Three traits that if followed by all, a way of preserving our world, as we know it.

      These three precepts are the very foundation leading to inner peace. Faith, hope and charity. The older I get p the more I "get it."

      Thank you my friend for this hub and all the blessings you send my way as a result of reading your thoughts.
