Faith and Belief

 

One good analogy of the difference between the “belief” and “faith” that someone recently told me was this:
Pretend you are on top of a four story building. Across the street below, is another four story building. Between the two stretches a rope. You need to get to the other side. On your side, there is a person with a wheelbarrow. If this person walked across the rope pushing the wheelbarrow and then came back, you would believe that he could do it. But, to have faith in something is to be willing to get into the wheelbarrow and let him push you across without having seen him do it. Belief was after you were shown. Faith is before you were shown.
