    The same Faithful and Loving God of Abraham, is our God as well, when we follow in the steps of the same Faith and Love of Abraham's God. This is one of my favorite stories in the Bible, for how it shows the LORD's care and guidance in the good and natural things of this life. I also like very much, how everyone acted with respect to God's guidance: what a happy world it would be when we do also.

    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.
