“Faith is not what you profess to believe. Rather, it is that wich you believe enough to live by, and act upon.”
“Thus was born one of the most powerful marketing tools of the twentieth century: giving away one thing to create demand for another. What Woodward understood was that “free” is a word with an extraordinary ability to reset consumer psychology, create new markets, break old ones, and make almost any product more attractive. He also figured out that “free” didn’t mean profitless. It just meant that the route from product to revenue was indirect, something that would become enshrined in the retail playbook as the concept of a “loss leader.”
“We’re not thinking about why!” shrieked the mother. “We’re thinking about who did it! You have to find out who it was, and lock him up! He’s sick.” Her husband patted her arm awkwardly. “We don’t yet know,” Sejer said, “whether the person in question is really sick or not. Not every killer is sick.” “You can’t tell me that normal people kill young girls!”
“Faith in Jesus does not guarantee that everything will go our way. Look at Hebrews 11, the chapter sometimes called the faith hall of fame. Consider just the first three heroes mentioned in that chapter. As Bible commentator Bruce Waltke has pointed out, Abel had faith and he died; Enoch had faith and he did not die; Noah had faith and everyone else died!2 So just having faith doesn’t guarantee your life—or the lives of those around you—will be all candy canes and lollipops. Life isn’t always fun, and we shouldn’t expect it to be.”
