"Anyone who is among the living has hope—even a live dog is better off than a dead lion!" ~ Ecclesiastes 9:4
I've never seen this passage before and thought it was quite interesting.
Basically, we all have hope if we are alive.
Hope is wishing for something, a longing, a desire for a positive outcome. It is similar to faith, because it can not be seen, but felt.
We say, "I hope you have a good day." or "I hope you start feeling better soon." Those are positive ways for wishing something good on someone.
But we also have a hope for our future.
In Jeremiah 29: 11 GOD says, " For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
I am so thankful that God wants to give me hope and that He has plans for my future. I hope you know that about your life and realize it's true for you too.
My hope is in the Lord. He is faithful and I know He has great plans for us all!
Where is your hope?
