The Definition of Hope

……according to Dallas Willard is the “anticipation of good.”

Not a wish.  Not something that might happen, but a certainty.  Hope is knowing that something good is going to happen.  Hope is being sure that something good is going to happen.

Our world desperately needs more hope.  But we need to learn this definition before we can give it to them.
