Re: Verse reading–Hebrews 1:1-6, 14; 2:1-4 (day six)
“But in these last days He (God) has spoken to us in His Son. ..We (therefore) must pay more careful attention.”  (v. 1:2, 2:1)  Have you ever seen a small child (thinking that her Dad is not listening to her) take his face in her hands and hold it toward her?  In Hebrews 2, the Bible uses a similar picture.  The Greek word for pay attention means, literally, “to hold toward”.  In this case the responsibility is ours.  We are to “hold our face toward God”, not rushing away from a Quiet Time before we hear what the Spirit is saying.  Most spiritual weakness these days is a function of haste.  Insufficient time and attention is paid to God.  Do we wonder why His promises seem so far away?  At the transfiguration (Matthew 17), God the Father gives similar instruction.  “This is my beloved Son. . .  Listen to Him!”  Do you have His perspective/His wisdom?  Are you listening?
