Genesis 25 – Genesis 26
The story of Genesis shifts as Abraham’s long life comes to a close, and Isaac becomes the heir and descendant of Abraham. As I was reading, I couldn’t help be chuckle, as I was reminded that ‘the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree,’ or that ‘like father, like son’ quickly applies to Isaac. “She is my sister,” he states to King Abimelech, regarding his wife Rebekah. It didn’t work well for Abraham, and it doesn’t work for Isaac. Perhaps we will see that the cunning nature of Abraham is an inherit trait. Then again, we don’t even have to look that far as Jacob tricks Esau out of his birth right. What a convoluted story! Let’s just keep in mind the big picture, the entire story, which tells about God’s divine love and our salvation.
Lastly, an invitation, beginning tonight we will meet in the Chapel for conversation and reflection. We gather at 6:30 p.m. if you are in the area, stop in and join in the conversation.
Hope to see you there,
