Legacy of trust

Abraham was about to do the unthinkable. God asked him to sacrifice his only son Isaac, born to him in his old age. When his son asked about the animal for the sacrifice, Abraham said: “The Lord will provide.” That was enough for Isaac. He trusted the good judgement of his father. No further questions.

Such an amazing trust must have come from Abraham’s unswerving trust in God (Gen 22). His trusting relationship began all the way back in Genesis 12 when God called Abraham out from his own country. Although he lived a well settled life in a place called Ur, he adopted a nomadic lifestyle that he continued till death.

Maybe it’s a Godly legacy of trust passed down the generations. Isaac trusted God with the same depth of trust that his father had.
