Bible Fathers (1)

Several weeks ago, we talked about some mothers in the Bible. Since today is Father’s Day in America, we will read about some Bible fathers.
Our first Bible father is Abraham. He was 100 years old when his son, Isaac, was born! Isaac grew up, and it was time for him to find a wife. But Abraham did not want Isaac to marry a woman from the country where they lived. Why? Because those women did not love and worship God.
Our Bible Reading tells us that Abraham sent his servant to Abraham’s homeland to find a wife for Isaac. The servant traveled to the place where Abraham’s relatives lived. The rest of chapter 24 tells us that the servant found a wife for Isaac.
It is important that we encourage our children and grandchildren to find a Christian husband or wife. Then they both can work together to serve God. Pray for your children and grandchildren today. Ask God to help them stay close to Him.
