On my final post for this Practicing Hope series, I want to summarize 4 places to look for hope. In such few words, it capsulizes everything I’ve been trying to say.
It matters where you look for hope. It determines what you see.
These four directions are from the book, Mere Hope, by Jason Duesing. You can read more from his book here.
Where should you look for hope?
1. Look down
Look down to find the foundation of hope. Find the good news of the gospel as its base.
2. Look in
Look in to find the fountain of hope, Jesus Christ. He is the living hope that resides inside us.
3. Look out
Look out and see the flourishing of hope. Share it locally; share it globally.
4. Look up
Look up to focus on the truth of hope. Be reminded of our future.
