Fast Focus: 'What do you wish you had known when you left high school?' Real hope and change

June 1, 2014 

Everyone needs hope to have significance in life. Many graduation speeches try to inspire others to have hope, in order to change the world for the better. This is only truly inspiring for meaning and purpose in one's life, if you include God in the formula for success.

Our nation will only have real and long-lasting positive change if we have a major spiritual revival, inspiring people to live Godly lives. Man's wisdom is foolishness to God, but we have the mind of God in the Bible. If we are willing to read and study it searching for the truth, God will give us true understanding and hope built on absolute truths, if we follow them.

"God loves you" is the beginning of all true hope for anyone. He has a perfect plan for your life if you want it. God allows you though to choose whether you want to know Him or not. Only the Bible answers what truly happens to one after death, and how to have real meaning and purpose in life now.
