It’s a new week! Monday. I hope this is a great day for you, and that as the week goes on it gets better and better.
Today, Abraham is tested as we read Genesis 21 and 22 from the New Century Version…
May God bless the reading of His Word.
What a test. Notice that we have no evidence that Abraham argued with God. Wow. I’m not sure I would be able to obey that easily. Also, how old do you think Isaac was? When you see this story unfold in your imagination, how old does Isaac look? I think most of us see him as a young boy. Would you believe that commentators deduce that he was somewhere between 18 and 37 years old? Remember, Abraham was 100 when Isaac was born, so if he had wanted to, Isaac could have easily resisted. So this was also a test of Isaac’s faith, wasn’t it?

We had a good discussion about the show there at the Facebook group. You should go check it out and add your opinion, too! BTW, our newest member is Jamie Mazza, another longtime Lifespring! listener. Welcome aboard, Jamie!
So that’s the podcast for today. Until tomorrow, may God bless you richly!
