Abraham’s family did expand through Isaac as God promised, and He blessed Ishmael as well.  The genealogies are important, fight the urge to “skim” over them! 🙂 Even though Isaac and Ishmael’s history was atypical at best, they were still brothers. It doesn’t seem like there is animosity between the two of them – they come together at the end of Abraham’s life to  bury him next to Sarah.  The Message translation reads, “he died happy at a ripe old age, full of years” (Genesis 25:8). What a nice way to end a life, happy. The Lord kept His promises to Abraham!

Now on to the next generation – Jacob and Esau!  See you tomorrow!

    175 years at a ripe old age. Hard work pays off especially when you set yourself up for success. The take away for me in these last two days of reading is discipline and obedience. I can assure you if I had to sacrifice my child I would not be able to commit to it. I could not impregnate another woman if asked by my wife, I could not be patient for my promises from GOD. How far I need to grow to commit myself……not a question. The descendants of Abraham surely stacked up heavy and scattered through the land. I await my promise oh Lord be patient with me…….
