5. With Hope

As entrepreneurs we feel the burden of the world’s problems and deeply believe in our ability to help solve them. This optimism — so essential to beginning the work of restoration — inevitably gives way to pessimism and even despair as we encounter more of the world’s brokenness and our own limitations. Yet we can give ourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because we know that our labor in him is not in vain. We can know the world at its most painful struggles and failures, yet choose to love it in hope. Praxis Partner, Jena Lee Nardella, shows us what it looks like to hope in the Lord and trust in his goodness, even when we encounter setbacks in our venture and leadership.
