Once all villagers decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer, all the people gathered, but only one boy came with an umbrella. That is faith.

Every night we go to bed without any assurance of being alive the next morning, but still we set the alarm to wake up. That is hope.

We see the world suffering, but still we get married and have children. That is love.

Three things will last forever – faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)

When you throw babies in the air, they laugh because they know you will catch them. That is trust.

We plan big things for tomorrow in spite of zero knowledge of the future. That is confidence.

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. (Jeremiah 17:7)

On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence: “I am not 80 years old; I am sweet 16 with 64 years of experience”. That is attitude.

You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. (Philippians 2:5)
