“Stories from the Waterin’ Hole”

On July 9, Pastor Katy preaches on Genesis 24:34-38; 42-47.

It doesn’t seem to matter what era it is, people are drawn to old watering holes when looking for something in life, especially a life partner. Abraham’s unnamed servant is no different as he arrived at a spring in Abraham’s homeland and calls on God’s guidance in finding a wife for his master’s son, Isaac. The sign he asked of God was no small feat; he would ask for a sip from the woman’s jar and she would offer to draw two or three-hundred gallons more for his camels! Despite the obvious extravagance from Rebekah, we don’t always acknowledge the presumption made about the spring itself; that the spring will keep flowing no matter what.
