What is the importance of faith in your life? It is the basis of how we react to everyone in our everyday life. It's how we live out our respect for each other. Without respect for each other, life is sad. My faith carries me day to day because it is the basis for living. It's my faith that has gotten me through the hard times.
How do you live out your faith? I just try to do things right. In your daily life try to do things right without trodding on someone.
