These phrases come from today’s Plow New Ground devotional by Ed. M., about Abraham offering his son Isaac in Gen. 22.

  • [God] wanted an understanding of who He is more than He wanted burnt offerings, Hosea 6:6.
  • Faith is trusting God to provide what He promised.
  • We admire [Abraham’s] faith without trying to copy his obedience!
  • He sacrificed himself before he put Isaac on the altar, Romans 12:1.

Focus question: How do you show obedience to God above your own desires and emotions?
