And hope makes not ashamed, because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us; Romans 5:5.
For we are saved by hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for what a man sees, why doth he yet hope for? Romans 8:24.
Hope is a good breakfast, but is a bad supper – Francis Bacon.
Hope is a bad supper if you don’t have hope in God.
If your hope makes you ashamed of Jesus now – someday you will not have the hope to stay with him.
