What are you hoping for? My list is long!
- I hope everyone learns to get along
- I hope justice wins
- I hope my family stays well
- I hope people like me
- I hope my mom stays well
- I hope my dishwasher doesn’t break
- I hope…
The list is endless!
On this earth, though, one hope is guaranteed, and that is the love of God for those who are in Christ.
“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
The greatest commandment according to Jesus in Matthew 22:36-40 is to love God. Is it possible that the greatest commandment is also the greatest gift? And our greatest hope?
