To have a better life we must grow a better Hope.
When I was younger I grew through many hopes – religion, money, power, sex, things or toys – all of these hopes are at best false hopes and at worst life destructive. But this is where part of the GraceFull journey comes in.
“And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:5
We can’t always see it – but there Is a Love beyond human comprehension.
This is what our faith must grow in IF we are to have that “better life” mentioned above … and herein lies part of the beauty of Grace – God (Who Is Perfect Love) allows all the other false hopes to be seen as false hopes If and when we are open to seeing it.
Think on this:
When my Hope is in Perfect Love beyond my sight, there is no longer a need to fight what I see.
When my Hope is in Perfect Love beyond human comprehension, there is no longer a need to explain and argue religion.
When my Hope is in Perfect Love without rules, regulations and levels of false righteousness, there is no need to judge, evaluate or show favoritism.
