She Probably Meant Well

  When Sarah considered the promises God made to Abraham she must have thought it could never be because Abraham had no heir. Sarah suggested Abraham have an heir through her handmaid, Hagar. Therefore, Ishmael was born who became the father of the Arabs.

  Later, however, Isaac was born to Sarah and through him came the Jews. From the earliest these two sons were enemies and have remained so down through the centuries through their descendants. It seems they will never live at peace with each other.

  But there is a place where ALL men can live in peace with each other and that is "in Christ" where racial, national and all other boundaries are removed because of being brethren in the Lord. Would not that a wonderful thing?

  Sarah probably meant well with her proposal but what a mess resulted. It is best to let God keep His Word His way.
