Romans 5:3-4 NASB "And not only this, but we also celebrate in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope;"Each time I threw it, there was a hope attached to the line! I love to fish but there are times I return home with an empty bucket, I guess that's why they call it fishing and not catching. Today's verses speak to us about hope, hope that comes after tribulations, and perseverance to stay the course! If I had allowed myself not to have hope of catching a fish each time I casted my line, what was the sense of fishing! In the world, especially with the pandemic still active, there are many who have lost their hope, but we can put our hope in Christ and God's Word, we may just have to go through the trials and tribulations and persevere to where our character is proven. As we inch closer to the celebration of Christ's Birth, may we find the hope in Him to cast our line upon the waters of this world! peace, tom
