Back to the Basics

We know that 4+4 is 8; and 9x9 is 81. We know that vowels are: a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes y. We also know that the rule for pronouncing the word, ‘p-i-n-e’ is pine. We learned to spell words like ‘believe’; 'i' before 'e' except after 'c'. All these things and more we learned in elementary school. These were basic things, or foundational things for us to move forward in many different areas of life. We use these things on a daily basis to press on and mature as a person. You cannot become mature without a foundation to build on. The writer of Hebrews wanted the recipients of this letter to press on to maturity, building upon a foundation of God’s word.
