In today’s age, we think that being optimistic is a good thing, but as Christians, we need to know what the difference is between optimism and faith. Optimism is a belief of the mind, while faith is a belief of the heart. While we may think that the worst can’t or won’t happen, it doesn’t change the fact of what will actually happen. The only thing we can do when the worst comes is to live by faith. When we try to reason things by nothing other than logic, it doesn’t give room for us to have faith in God. So when it comes to measuring an outcome, we have to measure it through God’s perspective of faith, and not our perspective of optimism.
