In today’s extended episode, M continues our study of Abraham’s story together. M does admit she is struggling to stay within the allotted time frame for episodes as she keeps finding so many things that she feels she just must share. Guilty as charged! LOL!
With this in mind, our reading begins with Sarai taking matters into her own hands and her servant Hagar then running away to the wilderness to meet with the God Who Sees. Abram is renamed Abraham, Sarai becomes Sarah, Sodom & Gomorrah are destroyed, Lot’s wife looks back and is turned to salt + God steps in to once again free Sarah from Abraham’s lies – this time to King Abimelech.
Whew! That is A LOT but also sounds pretty intriguing, right?!
You also don’t want to miss out on M’s bit of a deep dive into how God can and does use the faithlessness often found in our lives for fulfilling His promises and purposes. When we are faithless, He is faithful.
Oh, OOBT friends, you certainly don’t want to miss this one!
