Why be good? What's the big deal with how we live our lives? Why does hope matter? Why does how we live matter? The Book of 1 Peter offers three pictures of why we obey, the ways to look at the significance of our choices and why we do the right thing. His letter helps us to understand why doing the right thing and living the right way matters. It’s connected with the hope we have, hope we give to other people and the help we need as we suffer for doing the right things.
