How long could you survive?

How long can you survive without food? Most of us would get weak just thinking about skipping a single meal, but are bodies are a lot stronger than we realise. Hal Lindsey came up with this interesting thought:

"We can live 40 days without food, 3 days without water, 8 minutes without air, but only 1 second without hope."

I am not sure of the preciseness of these figures, but the point is taken! Hope is something that keeps us going and we NEED HOPE in order to survive on a daily basis. Take food away from someone for a while and they will survive, but take their hope away and they will struggle.

Job 11:18 - You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety.

Matthew 12:21 - "In his name the nations will put their hope."

Who do you put your hope in?

Living in Grace
