Today’s reading: Genesis 29-30
“Abraham: Discovering Purpose”
Focal passage for the week is Genesis 22:1-19
This week we will read about the death of both Abraham and Sarah. As their lives come to a close, notice how the purposes of God will be now carried on through the lives of Isaac and his children. The purposes of God transcend the lives of even people as great as Abraham! However, each of us is invited to play a significant role in the accomplishment of God’s plan. Our decisions impact how the purpose of God intersects the lives of others. For example, look at Ishmael and reflect on how Abraham and Sarah affected his life. Also this week – watch this all play out in the lives of Jacob and Esau.
