Wednsday's Words of Wisdom...Mike Wittmer on Hoping vs. Wishing

"Our hopes are only as strong as the reasons we have for holding them. Some hopes are nothing more than a wish -- I hope that it doesn't rain tomorrow or that my team will win the game. But Christian hope, the kind that makes the top cut with faith and love (1 Cor. 13:13), is grounded in the promises of God. Such hope is 'an anchor for the soul, firm and secure' (Heb. 6:19), because it rests in what 'God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time' (Titus1:2)."
