Proper 8/Ordinary 13, 2014 – Genesis 22:13-14

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Genesis 22:13-14And Abraham looked up and saw a ram, caught in a thicket by its horns. Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place “The LORD will provide”; as it is said to this day, “On the mount of the LORD it shall be provided.”

As I understand the Islamic tradition of this story, Abraham had the vision from God about offering his son as a sacrifice. When he told his son about the vision, his son accepted the vision as God’s will. As such, both father and son proved their faith in God.

Gracious God, may our faith in you shine in such a way that we deepen the faith of those around us. Amen.
