Hello Good Neighbor

Aug 15, 2022

Hello Good Neighbor,

I once had an individual end a conversation and take a few steps away, then turn around and state that he did not like the word, "Hope". Within the context of the conversation, he really was pressing for an answer, one that I could not give for that department. I was not the right person and more information was needed. We had a plan though. We would follow up and attempt to assist him with his problem, one I hoped (and expected) we could address.

How do you respond to the word hope? What does hope bring to mind when you think about it? 

Recently I have heard several thought leaders make statements that surround the concept of hope not being a strategy. I decided to look into it from a biblical perspective and compare scripture's description of hope with that of these leaders and look at the textbook definitions for hope.

If you've enjoyed the episode, will you consider sharing it with others? We appreciate your support, online reviews, and honest feedback. Email me at:

As always, my hope is that the messages here at Hello Good Neighbor be good for your soul.
