Day 33: Father Isaac

Bible

Isaac had an excellent example in his father, Abraham, and stayed true to that example. When it came time to make one of the most important and difficult decisions of his life, Isaac trusted his father’s and God’s judgment. He did not take a wife from the heathen people around him, but instead found a companion that God had prepared for him and with whom he could raise a righteous family.

It appears that he remembered that God had spared him from being sacrificed at his father’s hand, as he remained true to his faith all his life. He stayed deeply devoted to his wife, Rebekah, all his days and fathered Jacob and Esau. Jacob would later be renamed Israel, out of which the 12 Tribes of Israel came.

Question: What can we learn as father’s from Isaac’s righteous life?
