I think we sometimes forget that being a person of faith is often more evident in hindsight than it is in the present. Sarah, who is held up in Scripture as a model for women, connived with Abraham to make sure that God’s promise of a son was fulfilled; and when she heard she was to have the true son of promise, she laughed! Rebekah, the wife of Sarah’s son, Isaac, plotted with her younger son to see that he received the birthright instead of the son to whom God had promised it. Leah pretended to be her younger sister and married Jacob.
But all three of these women were in the lineage of faith. So just hang in there!
There is hope for me yet!!!
