Hope

The big three in the Christian life are faith, hope, and love.  The Bible says that these attributes will last forever.

 

I’ve always kind of understood faith and love – at least intellectually, if not experientially – but hope has somewhat eluded me.  Being a bit of a realist (certainly not an idealist), I’m typically not on the same page with those who always claim the silver lining inside every dark cloud.  Now I find myself musing about something slightly troubling.

 

The Bible says that “faith is the substance of things hoped for.”  Does that mean that if I do not have hope, I cannot have faith?  Do I have to be hoping for something before I can have faith that it will come to pass?

 

Maybe I need to start thinking more about hope.
