WALKING BY FAITH

"For we walk by faith, not by sight." (2 Corinthians 5:7 NRSV)


Faith is meant to be an everyday companion -- not a weekend guest.  In the curriculum of the Christian life, faith is a required course -- not an elective.  Our whole life should be lived on the basis of faith -- not on the basis of just what we see.  Because appearances are often deceiving, obscuring rather than clarifying things of eternal significance (2 Corinthians 4:18).  Faith gives us the clues to distinguish between the temporal and the eternal, between our earthly hut and our heavenly home.


-- Charles R. Swindoll in The Practical Life of Faith
