Craig Smith - Gifts and Givers
Let’s talk about Isaac today. None of what God ultimately did, with Abraham and Isaac, depends on Abraham. But Abraham did have one all-important role to play: he chose to trust the Giver, not the gift. If he had refused to trust God, as hard and heartbreaking as God’s call seemed, I think things would have turned out very differently… not just for Abraham, but for all of us. But he didn’t. He chose to trust God.
