A Family in Transition

This morning I read Genesis 24.  This is the story of Abraham sending his servant to his homeland to find a wife for Isaac.

Abraham does not want Isaac to marry a Canaanite from the land in which they are living and he does not want Isaac to go back to the land from which they came.  No place is really home.  They are a family in transition, truly living out the idea that God has not finished.

They wait in faith for God's promise to be fulfilled.  They know, through their faith, that God has promised them a home in the future, and has instructed them to come to the land to which he led them.  So, Abraham and his family wait.
