The Author of Hebrews wasn’t writing to unbelievers…He was addressing Followers of Jesus, just like you and me. He was urging them to keep their mind set on Jesus and not the peripheral distractions around them. And I think this is the perfect Scripture to consider a little more than a week out from Christmas! For at this time of the Holiday Season the “To-do” list looms large in front of us…with so many details that need to be done, and so little time to do them. It’s very easy then to lose sight of the real meaning of Christmas and just get caught up in the commercialism and hype. When the stresses of Christmas have you anxious this week…do as this verse suggests…fix your thoughts on Jesus.
