We don’t always understand everything in the Bible, and this is one of those stories. I believe that sometimes we just need to “Let God be God,” and accept that we don’t have to understand everything in order to have faith.
The bottom line is that Abraham did have that kind of faith in abundance, and he proceeded to act on God’s unusual request before the day was out!

For friends new to this blog, “Wednesday’s Word” is a weekly Bible audio clip that rotates between Genesis, Luke and Psalms. Occasionally, I post “Wednesday’s Word to the Free,” a short Bible passage on what it means to be free. Freedom is a very big concern to Timley Mouse, the tiniest character in my upcoming novel, Bon Voyage, Sophie Topfeather!
On Sundays, I post an article-type post on themes in the novels: faith, friendship, diversity, etc. Thanks for reading! Feel free to share!
