Take Up Your Cross February 7th 2015

What we do in life upon this earth comes back around like a boomerang in the eternal realm.

The Flesh of Ishmael The Promise of Isaac

Abraham was elderly, in his eighties and still yearning for a son, for an heir to carry on His namesake.  Sara was still barren these many years and Abraham had not yet received the son God had promised to provide.  The only child to have grown up in their household was Eliezer, who was born to a servant, not of Abraham’s loins.
