    Does anybody really read scripture anymore? In Exodus 24:10, Moses and 70 elders "saw" GOD, where did the same experience of the prophets come from - was their "vision" corrupted by their own perspectives or intentionally enhanced to suit their audience? Does anyone read past the words on the page anymore - or just reflexively quote verse without seeking the deeper meaning? Can you see beyond?

    I reason along with this scripture, Rebecca covered her face as soon as she was told that Isaac is the servant's master, let this be a lesson to all ladies that bed should be kept undefiled till wedding. Also,when you truly serve the Lord,people who doesn't have much faith in the Lord will believe through you, this is in case of Abraham's eldest servant. May God bless us all.

    Right from Abraham to his servant; there's a real show of belief in none, but the LORD alone.
    This episode proves the faithfulness of the LORD. Also it reveals how much God cares and listens to
    His committed children. The story encourages all who want to really walk with God in their Christian endeavor.

    As I look at this Bible massage, it's always better to be faithful to God and to walk in his righteousness. Through his righteousness together with faithful prayers God will provide us with genuine wisdom and generation blessings. Indeed God will provide us with what's EXTREMELY good and at a right time. May God strongly be Blessed in Christ Jesus.

    That Abraham return to his kindred to take a wife for his son, the lesson for me here is that as Christians we should strive to marry fellow Christians especially that cousin marriage is no longer tenable in our world today more so, the simplicity of the union at the time cannot be compared to the complicated world of today. God therefore is key in the union of two people now than ever before.

    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.
