Practical Advice

Hebrews 13 The author of Hebrews writes to his audience that all things they consider doing should be done practically. Each piece of advice is given to encourage and bolster their walk with Christ. The first piece of advice is to live with the brethren in love. That is one reason Christ came, to teach us how to love one another and here the Hebrews author closes his epistle reminding them to love one another. Secondly, to them he said: do not neglect hospitality for you may not realize it but you may inadvertently share out of your meagerness with an angelic figure without realizing it. 

Again the Hebrews author reminds us: Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls and will give an account for their work. Let them do this with joy and not with complaints, for this would be no advantage for you. 

The author reminds them to pray for them. Pray in the morning, pray at noon and pray again in the evening. Prayer will be the sustaining factor to succeed in their work.

This chapter would be a good one to read every day for the advice is wise to help us live scripturally to honor Christ.
