Hebrews 3-4 B

“But Jesus deserves far more glory than Moses, just as a person who builds a house deserves more praise than the house itself. For every house has a builder, but the one who built everything is God.” 3:3-4

Out of all the richness of today’s chapters, these verses grabbed my attention:

Mostly, I liked the reminder that we need to give God the credit for the things we love. We are so quick to worship the wrong things! Maybe it’s a person, or a hobby, or a landscape. Maybe it’s something you made with your own hands. Directing our praise and thanksgiving to God helps us practice being humble and deepens our love for Him.

The author of Hebrews is redirecting the readers worship and awe of Moses, back to Jesus. I’ve done that before. Instead of noticing the Christ-like qualities in someone, and allowing it to deepen my love for the Lord, I get side-tracked by the person and fan the flame of my people-pleasing and performing.

The one who built everything is God.

What is something you just love. Do you prop it up and idolize it instead of God?

How can you redirect yourself on that?
