"...All human things depend on faith..."

Meditation for a Sunday morning

"Faith is the reality of what we hope for, the proof of what we don’t see. The elders in the past were approved because they showed faith."

Letter to the Hebrews chapter 11 verses 1-2, CEB


Wouldn't it be more reasonable, since all human things depend on faith, to believe God rather than them? Who goes on a voyage, or gets engaged to be married, or becomes the parent of children, or sows seed in the ground, without believing that something better will happen because they did, even though the contrary might and sometimes does happen instead?
