The tender heart the Tin Man thought he was missing allowed him to get his dream job. He was asked to be the leader of the Winkies, after they were freed from slavery under the Wicked Witch. The Tin Man had the faith to believe he could get a heart. In the same way we need to have faith, otherwise we cannot please God. With sincere faith, we are promised to receive a reward from our God.
Questions for further thought:
1. What are you currently hoping for?
2. What is your level of faith for that hope?
Challenge: Hebrews 11 is full of examples of how faith has helped many of our Old Testament heroes. Read the complete chapter and thank God for his faithfulness in our lives.
