Do you remember when Abraham
took Isaac upon Mt. Moriah to offer him as a sacrifice to the
Lord (Genesis 22)? As we try to image the struggle that must
have been going on in Abraham's mind, don't miss out on the
thoughts that must have been running through Isaac's mind as
well. Yet, in spite of the difficulty of the situation, we
simply see faithful compliance on the part of Abraham as well
The Point: What
do you think must have been going through the mind of Isaac as
his father laid him on the altar and raised the knife,
prepared to kill him? I don't know what he thought, but I am
pretty sure that the details of this event were burned into
his memory. I dare say that for as long as Isaac lived, he
remembered the events of this day, and just how faithful his
father, Abraham was to the commandment God.
What kind of life-long memories are you creating in your
home? What events, demonstrating your faithfulness to God,
will be burned into the memory of your children? What steps
have you taken to impress upon your children that you are
completely sold out and committed to the Lord?
Dennis Rainey calls these
events, "Mt. Moriah Experiences." Friends, I believe it's
time to create some "Mt. Moriah experiences" for our
children. Mothers and Fathers, Grandparents...make plans.
Give thought and meditation. With intention, do something
that will be burned into the memory of your children and
grandchildren that will demonstrate to them that you are a
committed disciple of Jesus. What greater legacy can you
