Genesis 10-12, John 4
“Now Sarai was barren; she had no child” (Genesis 11:30). And yet, just a few verses later, God says to Abram, “I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2). God uses a barren couple to bring hope to the world. From Abram would come Israel. From Israel would come Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world! Hundreds of years later, as the world still desperately waits for redemption, God again chooses a barren couple to bring John the Baptist into the world. He offers hope to these couples … and to the world.

May our food also be to do the will of our Lord, and our water spring up from within by the Spirit.
Sarai’s story doesn’t sit well inside of me. How did she feel, being fearfully tossed to Pharaoh by her own husband? Was that God’s will? Was there not another way for Abram and Sarai to pass through Egypt? Or is this an example of God redeeming our brokenness, in that He provided them a way of escape, even after Abram’s destructive decision, that included new riches?
i love the story of the samaritan woman. it’s always a reminder that jesus doesn’t judge and loves all. loved today’s reading!!✞✼
I have always loved the story of the Samaritan Woman
The story of Jesus resurrection the boy reminds me that we need to trust Jesus at His word. Also, once Jesus speaks something, that doesn’t mean we stop- we’ve got to keep moving or “running” to see His word come to “life”
Poor Sarai. Either way she’s gonna be taken by Pharaoh. Wish we heard more of her own voice.
