Hebrews 10:24 (NLT)
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
Everyone likes to be cheered on, even if it’s just one person doing the cheering! It makes us feel appreciated and supported and it motivates us to try harder or to just finish the race. Unfortunately, sometimes we spend more time talking each other down than we do lifting each other up.
The author of the Book of Hebrews was writing to a crowd that needed some good cheerleading. It was incredibly difficult to be a Christian back in those days. Jewish people were mad at you for following Jesus and the Romans thought you were a potentially dangerous, up-and-coming religious movement. The Christians back then really needed to stick together and cheer one another on…and we still need that, today.
The Christian life can be really hard, and that is why the Bible has so much to say about how we treat one another. We all need to be encouraged to do the right thing because our sinful nature always wants to do the wrong thing. We all need some cheerleaders in our lives…so why not start that at home?APPLICATION: Come up with some ways that your family can “motivate one another to acts of love and good works.” Take a few minutes to write encouraging notes to each other, and then go put them on each other’s beds or dressers. Finally, do a family cheer together, like: “Give me an N! Give me an O! Give me a B! Give me an L! Give me an E! What does it spell? Noble! Say it again! Noble! Gooooooooo Noble
