I’ve Grown Cynical of Cynicism

I’ve Grown Cynical of Cynicism

People of faith being cynical is a bit of a contradiction. After all, don’t we believe in a God who—even when we make mistakes—is faithful to desire to bless us and see potential wherever we put our feet?

Even though it’s tempting to connect suffering or flaws with lack of hope, then, we might be wise to remember the apostle Paul actually said it was the opposite. He said we could rejoice in our sufferings because they help us persevere, which builds character and hope. Suffering, then, doesn’t cancel out hope. Suffering helps make hope.
