There’s a television commercial that inspires me to serve others. I forget what it’s even advertising, but it depicts a chain reaction of small acts of kindness. It begins with one person helping a stranger by returning her forgotten purse. A witness to the act then helps someone else. And so on and so on. Each one is inspired by a selfless act of another.
The testimonies of others often encourage us to act in similar ways. The author of Hebrews understood that dynamic. He shares a long list of faith heroes with his readers to inspire them to stand firm in the face of persecution. Chapter eleven, called the Hall of Faith, stands in stark contrast to their fearful faith. How does it compare to ours?

Just wanted to say I’m enjoying the study, although I’ve been quiet. My mom-in-law was hospitalized for nine days in mid Feb. She lives with us except for when she visits other children here and there. So, I’m playing catch up, studying in Ch 9 this week.
Thanks for sharing the study online.
Hi Jeanette! The hospital thing is draining for the whole family. So sorry to hear that, but so glad you are still studying Hebrews. The online study is great because you can go at your own pace.
