Listen and Follow Directions

Isaac was Abraham’s only son and he loved him very much which makes this test found in Genesis 22 extremely difficult. Reading in this passage, God told Abraham to take his only son and sacrifice him on a mountain in the region of Moriah (v. 2).

Abraham following through with the directions God gave him even though he probably thought of every reason not to. Instead, he carried out the instructions from God and at the last minute, the angel of the Lord told Abraham not to lay a hand on Isaac (v. 12). Abraham had passed the test.

Above anything else, God wants us to love Him, listen to Him, and follow His directions. He will reward us if we treat our treasure as though we are willing to offer it to Him. Lord, this day with You, we offer our treasure to You. Use our treasure to bless others beyond their wildest dreams. Amen!
