12 May: Heavenly Country

In this famous section of Scripture, Hebrews 11 (the entire chapter), also called the Hall of Faith, we see that this life of faith is not only for the spiritually elite.  The author listed many examples, and all of them were fairly common types.  Abel was the youngest child and a shepherd.  Noah was probably a carpenter.  Abraham was very wealthy.  Isaac was an only child.  Jacob was a liar and a cheat.  Joseph went from loved son to slave to prison to leader of the land.  Moses was a prince, turned shepherd with a speech impediment.
