Hebrews 10:24 = “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works.” Whenever I see the work “provoke” it causes me to envision a negative activity toward another. Verses like Ephesians 6:4 come to mind. “And ye fathers, “provoke” not your children to wrath but bring them up in the…
