1/20/2018 Genesis Chapters 25-26

As we read these passages do you see a “lesson learned” by Isaac from his father, Abraham? (& not necessarily a good lesson.)

Yes, in Chapter 26:7-9 we see Isaac tell Abimelek, king of the Philistines, that Isaac’s wife, Rebekah, is his sister.  This is just like what Abram did twice with Sara.  And, yet the Lord continued to bless Isaac just as he has blessed Abraham.

So, my question — why does the Lord continue to bless these imperfect men?  My answer is similar to Job’s — I do not know the ways of the Lord. 

But I am comforted by the reality that even as an imperfect person if I am faithful I can be used in my imperfection to serve the Lord.
