The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else.

We couldn't live our lives without faith or hope: without faith, we cannot know the God of love; without hope, we would not endure in our faith until we meet him face to face. But in spite of the importance of faith and hope, love is even more crucial. Because without love, the Bible teaches there can be no redemption. Wise Quotes of Wisdom.
