January 11 Genesis 24-26 & Mark 4:26-34
Abraham and Sarah - Isaac and Rebekah déjà vu. Isaac is as faithful as Abraham. Sarah and Rebekah both reflect in life the faithful commitment to God and their spouses. What is your families story? Are there realities and stories that you share with other family. When have you had a sense of God's providence in your own story of life? How do you relate to the stranger in your midst? Have you noticed how fearless Pope Francis is when he is among strangers? Again Abraham and Sarah's life span is not a matter of history as it is of spirituality. The length of their ages is there to indicate that they were total right with God.
