Hope is a word that gets thrown around a lot but what does it actually mean? For me, I have started using it in my testimony to replace “I know.” I now say, “I hope” because for me that feels more accurate.
I don’t really honestly know about life after death. But I sure hope all I have been taught is true. Hope is my motivating factor. I hope this is all true because the bigger picture of the gospel provides me peace.
My personal definition goes something like this:
Hope is trusting there is a finish line.
Faith is believing I can run the race.
Charity is helping others run the race.
- Define hope
- How does hope help you throughout the day?
- What do you hope for?
- Why is hope important for you?
- What is the difference between hope and faith?
- Why are hope, faith, and charity mentioned together?
