Re: Verse reading–Hebrews 10:19-39 (day 5)
Hebrews 5:11 – We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand.
I had my own moments of refusing to learn and grow this week thanks to Apple (new iPhone software). Progress, opportunity, and effectiveness often require tenacity, patience, and perspective. Just when I’m ready to give up and chunk my phone, I read a review or hear a comment about the wonderful new and productive things iPhones can now do. This is not a commercial for cellular products but rather a testimony of the tendency of human nature to resist and reject progress and change. When I read on in this passage I see the potential: discerning good and evil (5:14), assurance of hope till the end (6:11) and an inheritance of God’s promises (6:12). So, I thank God for the reminder of my own tendencies and ask for grace and strength to listen, learn, and grow.
