On Sunday, our pastor taught on God’s Sovereign Providence in Genesis 24. At the end he mentioned a “romantic interlude,” describing the moment Rebekah and Issac first met.
He said that God didn’t have to have Rebekah arrive at evening…while the sun was setting…just when Issac had walked out into the field to pray. But God cares about the details.
When we were talking about it later as a family, my 16 year old told me that his study recently discussed Jesus’ first miracle. Apparently, it was the obligation for the wedding feast to provide wine during the entire feast. It was a financial obligation that–if not fulfilled–resulted in disgrace.
Turning water into wine wasn’t just about the party…it was the details!
