My beautiful new computer
Lately I've been reading reading in Genesis - finished last night - and when I read again the story of Abraham sending his servant to find a wife for Isaac it struck me that we so often do it all backwards. We expect the worst and don't prepare at all. (Or strangely, for the good we don't expect to happen.)
In my notebook I've written:
Abraham expected the best - " The Lord before whom I have walked, will send his angel with you and make your journey a success." And yet he prepared for the worst - "...if they refuse to give her to you - you will be released from my oath."
