Triumphant Heroes Show Us That Faithful Living Is Hard to Identify
Text to ponder this week
Hebrews 11:32-35 And what more shall I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets— who through faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, were made strong out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight. Women received back their dead by resurrection.
Thoughts to ponder this week
1. Don’t allow personal failures to rob you of living the rest of your life by faith.
2. Don’t be quick to disqualify others because of personal failure; they may very well be living by faith right now.
