Genesis 22:2 - Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”
Things to think about:
1. Abraham - Devoted follower of God
2. Issac - a Beloved Son
In our current journey for a family, I have done some soul searching as I read about the women in the bible who prayer and begged God for Children. The Son's of these women all are called to a high calling. All have intimate relationships with God. All are sacrificed to Kingdom Building.
Oh the mixed feelings this causes me. I am so filled with Human Doubt. When I think about the moments after God gave this command, and what Abraham must have thought. Yet alone, what Isaac's sweet mother must have felt...my heart breaks.
Yet in all of it, Abraham was obedient. I hope with all hopes that if God chooses to bless us with Children, I too will be obedient to his call for their lives.
1. How will I keep God the focus of our parenting.
2. How do I work one creating a closer relationship with the Lord, so I will trust his direction and call.
3. How do I prepare my heart for the separation that will one day come from my children.
