As you have likely heard, there is a particularly subtle Chinese curse in which the speaker intones, “May you live in interesting times.”
We certainly do.
I’m not sure this should qualify as a curse (would you prefer boring?). But it does suggest we need to keep our wits about us when so much is changing. The writer of Hebrews provides us with some hints on how to do this. They are found in Hebrews 13:7-8, which we take up today.
