February 10, 2013 - Word of the Day

faith

 

To have faith is to believe in something or someone. We use this word in a way that's similar to the noun, "hope." It's also often used to describe a religious institution and the people who practice a religion.

  • Yussuf has a strong faith in God.
  • His faith in God is strong.
  • Sabeen's faith was tested during the war.
  • The United States is home to people of many different faiths.
  • Meredith and Chris have a strong marriage and they have faith in each other.
  • I have faith that you will be successful.
  • My faith in you is strong.
  • Tom put too much faith in the knot that he tied for his boat, and it broke loose.
  • Jennifer has no faith that her car will start.
  • Bill has very little faith in the weather forecast for today.

Adding "ful" to the end of "faith," makes the adjective, "faithful."

  • They have been faithful to each other.
  • Benito is a faithful and devoted husband.
  • Susan was unfaithful to her husband, so he divorced her. (To make the opposite of "faithful," add a "un" prefix.)

church  Note: Sometimes the word "faithful" is used as a noun: Every Sunday the faithful gather at this church to worship God.
