Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation.Hebrews 11:2
The People of Old
Throughout the Old Testament we see many examples of faith. Hebrews 11 is famously known as the faith chapter because it recounts some of the best examples of faith there is. Some of these people even messed up but they were still counted as righteous.
Who are some of the people in your life who you credit as righteous? For me it was a youth leader. He was more like a father figure for everyone in our youth group. Even in difficult times, he still showed us his faith through his actions and words. He worked tirelessly on events and Bible studies to help us grow in our faith. Take some time to pray for the people God has placed in your life and thank him for their faith.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for the people you have placed in my life over the years who love you and have invested in my spiritual growth as well. Amen.
