I found several definitions of the word but the below in Webster’s New World Dictionary, Second College Edition, explains it best
Faith: unquestioning belief that does not require proof or evidence
When we say we have faith what does it really mean? There are different dimensions of faith, I think. I also believe that there is a very thin line between faith and stupidity. There is nothing wrong in believing in something. Absolutely nothing. But, what is the very thing you believe in will be the cause of your downfall, be to your detriment? When you have faith in someone, that is almost a 360 degree turn. You believe in someone, you have faith in them, you expect them to be there for you, support you, stand by you. Is this level of faith expected to be reciprocated? What if it isn’t? Would you think that the friendship/relationship is not worth fighting for or staying in?
Knowing that someone believes in you, is willing to put their trust in you, have confidence in whatever it is you will do and feels assured that you will do all you can in any situation is a wonderful feeling. But, what does it mean to you?
This may all sound like mumbo jumbo right now … I feel like my thoughts are not flowing properly but the basic premise of this post is FAITH. How differently would you look at a person or the world if you couldn’t have faith in something or someone? How differently would you feel if no one had or could have faith in you?
