Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Have you ever heard a child who, after being sent to their room to find something had them come back moments later and intone those famous words; “I can’t find it anywhere.” I have watched as mom got frustrated, the child got frustrated, and I got frustrated then we all went storming off to the child’s room and the object in question was sitting there in plain sight.
The child, for his part does not know how to look. Or, they may know how but choose subconsciously to place finding the item on a lower priority than their current ability to focus allows in favor fo some other stimulus such as a favorite toy or a sound, or whatever they see first.
If we would please God we must train ourselves to focus on Him, to “fix our eyes upon Him (ibid 12:2) in Paul’s letter to the Romans he urges the Roman Christians to “present” (NKJV)themselves as living sacrifices (12:1) In other words we must offer him our complete attention. That is what it means to “earnestly seek Him” It will not be enough to plead that the world distracted us when the last day arrives.
