Rebekah’s Charm

Genesis 24:67

 

Synopsis: Stories, we all love them and whether we realize it or not we find our identity in them.  There are all kinds of stories and some like one type more than other types.  The kind of stories a person enjoys says more about the person than the they realize. 

      There are some folks who like long stories like novels and biographies.  While others prefer the Reader’s Digestapproach of using short stories.

      Some stories are true stories and may even follow a historical narrative approach while other stories are pure fiction. There are stories that make us laugh and stories that make us cry.  Some have a way of getting under our skin and thus make us aware of things about ourselves that we may or may not like.

      My text for today comes from the last verse Genesis 24, but I want to call your attention to the whole chapter.  It’s a sad funny charming story really.  Simply put, it is the story of Abraham send his servant off to find a bride for his son Isaac and Rebekah was waiting at the end of his journey.  She said yes!  It’s a love story unlike most, but this lady was not like most.  It is, without a doubt, a faith story.  It’s a story of comfort and hope and a very simple statement of what marriage can and should mean.  It is a story of fulfilment.
