Tuesday, 19th March 2024: Act promptly with a visionary approach!

Scripture Reading: Gen 25:6
But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.

Reflections: After Sarah’s death, Abraham married Keturah and had six children with her. Just before his death, Abraham made a significant decision. He sent away all his children, except for Isaac, from the land of Canaan. Each child received a special gift while leaving, showing Abraham’s love for them. The reason for this decision was apparent. According to the covenant promise, Isaac was the chosen one through whom God would raise the nation of Israel. This nation would inherit the land of Canaan. Abraham knew this decision was crucial to avoid potential conflicts between Isaac and his siblings over the inheritance of the land after his death. Like Abraham, you should also act promptly with a visionary approach to avoid creating grounds for disputes that may arise in the future.

Prayer: Dear Lord, help me adopt a visionary approach in key decisions I take.

Confession. My actions are visionary influenced.
