Keep on loving each other as brothers. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:1–6, NIV 1984).
My Musings -“From one simple life to another I will say come, find peace in the Father. Be strong in the Lord and never give up hope you’re gonna do great things, I already know. God’s got his hand on you so don’t live life in fear. Forgive and forget, but don’t forget why you’re here. Take your time and pray thank God for each day. His love will find a way. These are the words I would say.” — Sam Mizell, David Frey, Ben McDonald.
What would you say, “from one simple life to another?” Love one another? Show hospitality even to strangers? Remember those imprisoned and persecuted for the faith? Be sexually pure and faithful? Don’t give in to greed but be content with your lot? These are the things that the writer of Hebrew was inspired to close with. Parting words. Last words. Usually words of utmost importance.
My Advice – It is one thing to say these things and quite another to do them. All of them require a certain amount of unselfishness. A little less of what can I get and a bit more of what can I give. Yet, in the giving we gain so much more than we could have gotten without these things. A God who will never leave (desert) us or forsake (turn His back on) us. With a helper like that, “what can man do to [us]? ” Now that’s finding” peace in the Father.” So “don’t live life in fear.”
