Entering a body of water (even a pool) as a nonswimmer can be intimidating. That’s one reason why a place like the Dead Sea is so exciting. Given its high salt content (almost 10 times that of normal sea water), you float rather than sink. How pleasant not to need a life vest!

The Dead Sea reminds me of the expression “hope floats.” Indeed, hope is buoyant, and you don’t need to float in the Dead Sea to get it. Everyone can experience the buoyancy that hope brings. It uplifts the spirit, bringing joy (Proverbs 10:28), courage (2 Corinthians 3:12) and redemption (Psalm 130:7). The next time you’re floating in a pool, think of that.
