    I thought it was beautiful how Abraham sent his favorite oldest servant to find his son a wife how happy in love they were with each other. It was a blessing that GOD, our HEAVENLY FATHER chose Abraham to send the servant out to make sure he found the perfect wife for his son so they could have many children then their children have more children to bring up a mighty nation.
  • I like the script of genesis

    What I received from this is God love is owesome he love these people so much they did not want for nothing because these people honor God they were rich in many things they obey God they love their families they were not against each other they had servant, and nurses they were wealthy this bless me to no that if we honor God he will do and give us anything thing we want and more .it like this God the father loved us so much he sent his son to die for us and his son loved his father so much he honor his father by obeying what he sent him to do and thats why right now we have a savor because the son obeyed his father God.we are a bless people .Amen

    I believe the veil is used when you are about to be married, as Rebekah knew she had met the man that would have been her husband. It is probably not to be used in all instances. I believe it is used correctly by the Christians? Because it was not said that she was wearing it before she met her husband

    Like Father like Son! Isaac must have learnt a lot from his father Abraham and he knew how to commune with God and spend quiet moments alone with God. Eliezar must have learnt from Abraham his master, how to worship, praise God and depend upon God in prayers while exercising faith. Our lives is like a book that people are reading daily. We must endeavour and strive to make sure it points all those around us to Jesus Christ.
  • David Nwosu for verse 65
    The action f Rebekah, was a form of symbolism. It teaches that a married woman should not shawn or shave her hair while her husband is alive except that she is mourning. Check 1Cor.11:3, 6,7 and 10. Note that the glory of the woman is her hair. (I am open to correction pl.)
