Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. (Martin Luther King, Jr., late civil rights leader)

We talk about “people of faith,” but in reality everyone lives by faith. Whether it’s a small thing, like trusting the chair to hold you when you sit down, or matters of more consequence like trusting your investments to earn dividends in a fluid marketplace. Of course, it’s not how much faith you have but what/who it is you’re trusting in. Where have you placed your faith and trust?

Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. . . It is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. (Hebrews 11:1, 6)
