Living by Faith-Learning from those who did not

The Hebrew writer is definitely encouraging his readers to live by faith and by the time he gets to chapter 11, the foundation has been well laid. Encouragement to live by faith surely can be given by pointing out those that have successfully done so. However, I think that we can, at times, find encouragement (or perhaps resolve) when we consider those that did not live by faith and the consequences it had.

Today’s lesson mixes both the faithful and the not faithful to help us realize we do indeed learn something from those who did not live faithfully.  Zedekiah, king of Judah, and the first generation of Israel who came out of Egypt are our examples of the ‘not so faithful’ and after you listen to this, hopefully we will say: “I don’t want to be like them”
