January 8 – Scripture of the Day



The scripture I highlight today is Genesis 25:1 which reads, “Abraham married another wife, whose name was Keturah.”

This comes after the death of Sarah, and is simply something I didn’t remember.

That’s not a particularly insightful comment (frankly, I don’t think much of what I write is all that insightful, but that’s a different topic).

But the reason I chose to focus on the fact that I didn’t remember that Abraham remarried after the death of Sarah is just that: I didn’t remember.

That is but one of the many reasons it is important to consistently and purposefully read the scriptures. Not only are there countless lessons to be learned, not only does reading bring us closer to God, but there is so much in the Bible that it is simply impossible to remember all of it.

And so I am glad that a re-read of Abraham’s remarriage after the death of Sarah.

Because I didn’t remember it.
