They were too good for this world, wandering over deserts and mountains, hiding in caves and holes in the ground.Hebrews 11:38
Too Good for this World
I love the end of Hebrews 11. These men and women of faith were too good for this world. They were motivated by eternity. It drove everything they did. It spurred them on in evangelism and discipleship. They led lives of faith, always trusting that God had something better for them. They had to hide because their faith threatened others. They lived their lives as Jesus lived His: serving people, knowing they would eventually come against Him.
What about you? What will be said of your faith at the end of your life? Could others say that you were too good for this world? What an honor that would be! Live your life in such a way that others will see your faith.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for the many people who were too good for this world. May their faith continue to inspire and spur me on. Amen.
