The Truth About Hope

One day a man starts out from one of the small airfields on the island of Santa Catalina off the coast of California. He starts flying west and hopes to find an airfield soon. In this case, his best hopes are to end up wet. There are no airfields west of Catalina in the range of a Cessna single engine prop.

A woman in Saint Louis boards a south-bound train in hopes of going to Chicago. Eventually, the only place her hopes will get her is New Orleans. Then again, maybe that was where she hoped to go. Many folks prefer New Orleans to Chicago. In general, the weather is better.

Neither of the above stories is true. However, people get turned around all the time. One afternoon, when I pulled out of a Sonic restaurant, I thought I turned west. I hoped, shortly, I would approach my home.

Needless to say, hope didn’t do me any good. On the other hand, when I stood outside my car and saw that the sun was behind me, I realized my error. Strange thing, though I was going east, I was absolutely convinced I was going west.

For me, the problem was doubled. I was getting low on gas and I didn’t see a hope of a gas station anywhere. At least I saw the error and drove north where I would likely find a gas station, which I did after about five miles.

The thing is, democrats like to talk a lot about hope. The problem is that they do this while all the time leading the country in the wrong direction.

It’s just not safe when you put your hope in people who don’t know what to do or how to do it. The fact is that most democrat politicians have never run company. The never met a payroll. In many cases, they never held down a real job.

Obama was a neighborhood organizer. Biden has always been a politician. Before getting into politics, Kamala Harris was a lawyer and, from what I understand, not a very good one. Some would go so far to say she wasn’t very honest either. Are these the leaders on whom we want to place our hope?

One more thing about hope, which is even more important. There are many who hope they will go to heaven who won’t. Satan has sold them a bill of goods. What he offers is a counterfeit faith. It is logical that if he hopes to fool people, he needs to make the counterfeit look very much like the real thing.

I would suggest, that you make sure you have the real thing, not the counterfeit. Hell is a horrible place and forever is a long time. It is a place without hope, ever.
