There are a few places in scripture where Faith, Hope and Charity are taught together...  Last night as I was studying Ether chapter 12 I realized that these three doctrines were taught in verse 4 but not as clearly as in other places.

4 Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God.

Faith leads to Hope... Not the modern definition of a wish but of an assurance and expectation.  Once we truly have Faith in Christ and have Hope for our own exaltation we abound in good works (Charity) to others...

Perhaps one of the best evidences of our own Faith and Hope is how charitable we are...
