Psalm 66.8-15, Genesis 22.1-19, Mark 7.1-23 - Lectionary for 3/23/11

Today's readings are Psalm 66.8-15, Genesis 22.1-19, and Mark 7.1-23.

"God will provide" - this is the hopeful answer of Abraham to his son's question when Isaac wanted to know who was going to die as an offering. And God did provide. He provided a ram which Abraham would sacrifice in place of his only son, whom God had told him to offer as a burnt offering. Abraham believed God. He trusted God's providence despite the confusing and deadly looking situation. God provided.

Whatever the circumstance we face, we can know that God is the one who does provide. He will not abandon his people.
