Hebrews 2:1-4

Famous words: “I will start saving next year when things are not so tight.” Saving for the future is always difficult, especially if every penny seems to be needed for today – a bigger house with more bedrooms and another bathroom for the growing family. Perhaps you have heard of the concept of the tyranny of the urgent. In his booklet by the same name Charles E. Hummel explains that there is often tension between urgent and important tasks and, in many cases, the majority of people allow the important things in life to take a backseat to the urgent ones. In Hebrews 2:1-4 the author, in effect, warns his readers of the tyranny of the urgent. Don’t neglect the important for the pressures of the present.
