We reason through things we see; we rationalize situations only to a point where our minds would allow us. With reason, there is no hope or assumptions, it works with what is available at the moment. One can only reason with logic; rationality and practicality are key components. Reason is the vehicle the secular world wheels on; the brain behind every invention, the only acceptable justification for every decision to take.
Faith-almost everyone has it; but definitely not in the same being. Some have it because they were raised in it; others have it because life has taught them to; some others because it is convenient for them and subject to their will. Faith demands the unshaking belief that something unseen exists even when all logic refutes it.
The world believes in facts, but facts do not necessarily mean the truth. Faith takes unrelenting trust to possess. People make it seem as if faith is for the weak-willed but the strongest in character are the ones who truly believe that Jesus came to earth to die for mankind, arose and will soon return for His own; when the world is trying its best to sell the story as a mere myth.
Reason has only two sides to a story; yes or no. It is either it can be done or it cannot. Faith says it is possible. It calls what is not as it is because there is more to the world than what the eyes can perceive and what the mind can understand.
Reason says a womb must be fertile and conducive to house a fetus; faith says all things are possible through Christ our Lord. Reason says terminal illness is a sure ticket to death but faith says in Him is life and in full abundance.
Only people with short-term plans for their existence live by reason alone; people who are eternity-conscious live by faith. What do you live by?
