The Goods on Sarah

The Bible often mentions Abraham and God’s covenant with him.

On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates—(Genesis 15:18, NIV)

May I point out that God had some thoughts for Sarah as well? He changed her name, promised to bless her and give the couple a child together. God promised she would be the mother of nations and birth kings.  (Genesis 15:17-18, NIV)

God promised her a son and even named him for her.  (Genesis 17:19, NIV)

God even gently corrected her when she laughed about the birth promise.

Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’  Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son. ”Sarah was afraid, so she lied and said, “I did not laugh.”

But he said, “Yes, you did laugh.” (Genesis 18: 13-15, NIV)

It is said that behind every successful man is a woman. Without Sarah, Abraham would have been in a pretty pickle. So dear ladies, when you get tired of laundry, meals, and clean-up, have your own conversation with God. Help your partner to be the best he can be. After all, a good husband will do the same for you.

Prayer- Lord when we tire of the mundane, thank you for the promise that nothing we do is in vain when it is for your glory. Amen.
