Genesis 15 and 16

Genesis 15 is about God’s covenant with Abram. In verse 1, I like how God told Abram to “Fear not, I am your shield”. Abram was a man of great faith.
Chapter 16 plays out like a great soap opera. Sarai is not able to give Abram a wife, so she tells Abram to sleep with her servant, Hagar. So they sleep together and Hagar gets pregnant. So just like a typical woman (haha), Sarai gets mad at Abram and places blame on him. Sarai takes her rage out on Hagar and Hagar flees. An angel of the Lord comes to Hagar and tells her son shall be called Ishmael. Hagar calls God a “God of seeing”.

I’m out the door to lunch with Jeremy Sandefur.
