Our small group is doing a Bible study on Hebrews and this week was Hebrews 11, the faith chapter. Most people turn to this chapter when they’re looking for bible verse about faith. Just the first verse in Hebrews chapter 11 gives us a great definition to help us understand the answer to the question, what is faith?

Now faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see. – Hebrews 11:1

Bible Study on Hebrews Chapter 11: The Faith ChapterThere are quite a few Bible verses about faith – just take a look at the 50+ listed below! But if you only had time to read just one chapter in the Bible and you wanted to focus on scriptures about faith, Hebrews chapter 11 is the place to turn.

Here’s a few points from Hebrews 11 that we discussed in our small group:

In this ever-changing world in which we live, all of us feel a little “un-balanced “ at times in our lives. What can we do to help us recognize what is causing that unbalanced feeling and how should we go about fixing it?
Let’s first identify some of the areas in our lives that we must keep in balance. There are home responsibilities, work responsibilities, community responsibilities, religious responsibilities, educational responsibilities, and social responsibilities – to name just a few.
HomeIn your home responsibilities you need to find a balance between all of the many things that you have to do there. For example, who are you at home? Are you a parent, spouse, teacher, cook, seamstress, gardener, doctor, vet, cheerleader, lover, and friend? All of these many responsibilities can wear you down and cause you to feel off-center.
It is important that you “job share” these responsibilities. The more you can communicate and share as a family the more understanding and help you will hav..

Admit it. You can’t afford not to budget. There are plenty of people out there who–despite their six-figure income–still find themselves in a vicious paycheck to paycheck cycle. The only way out? Budget. A good budget fits snuggly, but isn’t suffocating. It gives direction but isn’t overbearing. A real budget is constructive, not constrictive. My guess is, you’ve been in a bad-budget relationship most of your adult life. That good-for-nothing budget promised you extra money in your account and an end to your problems. Instead, you found nothing but store-brand beans, frustration, and a building sense of failure. You probably left the budget, then came back. Left, came back. Apologized. Left. Came back.

Left. It isn’t you Budget, it’s me. I just can’t do this. It’s too hard. Budgeting shouldn’t be dramatic. Healthy money management isn’t painful. When set up right, a budget is empowering. Let me assuage your fears (and let me use the word “assuage”) by helping you avoid some common budg..
