Faithful Servant

(devotional thought from Genesis 24)

Abraham's servant.

We don't know his name.

All we really know about him is his loyalty to Abraham. He prayed to God to lead him to the right wife for Isaac. he may have been the guy who would have inherited had Abraham never had those sons. If so, he took it well.

In a way, I have been surprised more wasn't been said about this loyal, selfless person on whom the whole lineage of Abraham's promise once depended.

May we all serve Christ and our neighbors as well as he did.

Just a thought for the day.
