The Spirit reminds us at the close of Hebrews, "Let brotherly love continue." And, "But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased."
The practical encouragements of God, bring reminder of the basics, love for one another, the admonition to do good, and to share. How basic are the desires of the Lord's heart. Not so much the burnt offerings, or the announcement of large gifts, but the sacrifices that bring praise to the Lord as we love, pray and encourage each other. In Him good works flow out from us, and sharing, whether in word, deed or acts of charity, as we are moved in the Spirit.
