HOPE–Why is Hope Important? (part 2 of a series)

One of my favorite quotes from the hunger games.: Yesterday I explained the definition of hope, with a couple examples. I’d like to give another example from a movie (also a book!) by Susanne Collins, which I’m sure many of you have seen. The first movie in the trilogy “The Hunger Games includes a scene between President Snow and Seneca Crane. When President Snow is upset about the turn of events in the arena he poses a question to Seneca, “Why do we have a winner? Hope. It is the only thing stronger than fear.”

There has been research done on people who have been in captivity. If they have even the smallest glimmer of hope to hang onto whenever their circumstances seem extremely dire, they will continue to cling to that, no matter what.  When I was in high school I read a book called, Prisoners of Hopeby Dayna Curry and Heather Mercer. It explains trials that they went through while living, working and afterwards captured in Afghanistan.

A short video with Heather Mercer can be found here.


When that hope is founded in the Lord, it makes a profound difference! Here’s why: We are humans.

We will fail.

There is nothing AND no one in this world that will be there, support us, and love us all the time–except Christ! That is unconditional love.
