Day 4.

The following quotes are the result of my random online search for "faith quotes" today. I really wanted to seek the general world view of "faith" and I'm pretty sure this gives me the picture I was looking for.

Read and then scroll down to today's question:

Faith is a grand cathedral, with divinely pictured windows - 

       standing without, you can see no glory, nor can imagine
       any, but standing within every ray of light reveals a
       harmony of unspeakable splendors.  
    \                                                                    - Nathaniel Hawthorne

Faith isn't the ability to believe long and far into the misty future.

     It's  simply taking God at His Word and taking the next step.
                                                                   - Joni Erickson Tada

Where hope grows, miracles blossom.

                                                                             - Elna Rae

Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is 

      still dark.
                                                                             - Rabindranath Tagore

All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have

     not seen.
                                                                          - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Faith is daring the soul to go beyond what the eyes can see.

                                                                           - William Newton Clark 

The root of all difficulties is a lack of the sense of the 

     Presence of God.
                                                                            - Emmett Fox

Fear knocked at the door and faith answered.  No one was

                                                                             - Old English Proverb

There are only two ways to live . . . one is as though nothing is

        a miracle. . . the other is as if everything is.
                                                                                            - Albert Einstein

Faith is reacting positively to a negative situation.

                                                                                 - Dr. Robert Schuller

Do you know of other thoughts that this world has as to WHAT faith is? Please share below. I am not looking for the "Christian" answer but more so, a GENERAL world view, including Christian. As we saw day 1 of this series, Hebrews 11:1 states what would be considered the "Biblical" answer to this question... expand your horizons today to become more aware of the ideology of those surrounding you!

Faith challenge: Ask 5 people today what THEY believe "faith" really is... this could get really interesting! The goal is not to convince them otherwise but more so for your knowledge and to see where you are positioned right now. Now go for it!
