Anchors are extremely important things. They were even more important in ancient times before the invention of engines which hold a ship against the current. Even today, boats without anchors tend to drift off course and wind up in trouble.
The Bible describes hope as an “anchor of the soul.” In the same place it urges us “to grab hold of hope” like a man seeking refuge from the people who are after him. This hope, the Bible says, will “strengthen and encourage us.” Are you looking for hope like that?
