Genesis 24:61-25:10 Then Rebekah and her young women arose and rode on the camels and followed the man. Thus the servant took Rebekah and went his way...
What does Rebekah do for Isaac (24:61-66)? What else happened in Abraham's family in these years after Sarah (25:1-6)? What did Abraham do with the inheritance he was leaving his children (25:5-6)? Why do you think this division was made? Ishmael joined Isaac to bury their father; what does this tell you about honoring our family members even when there's conflict or division?
We come to the end of Abraham's life today in Genesis 25. I was drawn to verse 8. "Abraham breathed his last and died in a good old age, an old man and full of years, and was gathered to his people." This basically says to me that Abraham had a good life--living for the Lord. It made me think I want a life like that too (although maybe not 175 years).
We've been looking at Abraham for several weeks now so I thought a look back as we say goodbye to Abraham would be good. So what did God show you through Abraham's life story? Have you experienced any changes in you or put something into practice as a result? Tami W.
