Christian: it is alright to look up to God for your needs and for reward (Cf. Psalm 123: 1-2) and Jesus encourages us to do so (Cf. Matthew 6: 9-11, 30; 7: 7-11; Mark 11: 24; Luke 18: 7; Mathew 11: 5, 28) and that is the virtue of hope. We are vulnerable creatures on earth, not like the angels in heaven who worship God disinterestedly and without any needs.
