Bible in 365: Day 19
Is it just me or should someone cue the romantic music at the end of chapter 24? I think the whole scene of Rebekah riding on the camels in the evening light and seeing her future husband in the distance is perfect for the makings of a great chick flick.
In fact, the whole of chapter 24 really would make a great movie. Did you see that amazing hospitality at work again? Rebekah bringing Abraham’s servant water and then watering all his camels is our modern-day equivalent of purchasing a strange, weary traveler a drink from a gas station and then filling up their car with gas (but hand-pumping it!).
I am truly amazed at Rebekah’s willingness to travel to a foreign land and marry someone she’s never met. On the bright side, she knows it is a distant relative and she knows she will not be lacking for wealth. But still, to leave your whole family and willingly be whisked away to get married. I suppose it sounds exciting, but to me pretty scary too!
Have you ever been asked to do something so spontaneous? Have you ever had to travel head-first into an unknown situation? How was your faith at that point?
