Lectionary Readings

Our scripture for Sunday is Genesis 21:8-21. Approximately how old are Isaac and Ishmael? You may want to review Genesis 16. What is Sarah's reason for wanting to send Hagar & Ishmael away? How did Abraham feel about sending Ishmael away? How did God calm Abraham's fears? What promise does God make about Ishmael? Who else does God make this promise to? Who did God hear crying? How did God resolve Hagar's immediate crisis? How often have you been so focused on the crisis that you could not see the solution that God had placed directly in front of you? In what ways do Isaac and Ishmael's lives mirror one another? Post your thoughts and share in the discussion.
