Weaker yet Stronger (Gen. 21: 22-34)


Although Abraham was a stranger in the land of Philistines, he was “the weaker” when measured by the world’s measures, but the inhabitants of the land even the leaders like Abimelech realized that he is special, and His God is a special God too, that is why Abimelech went to Abraham in order to make a covenant or a treaty, look at the words of the Philistine’s leader  which he said to Abraham  : ”  Now therefore swear unto me here by God that thou will not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son’s son. But according to the kindness that I have done unto thee, thou shall do unto me and to the land wherein thou hast sojourned “.

So let us follow the example of our faith father, who cared not about being wealthier or stronger that the inhabitants of the Land that surrounds him, but rather who cared about keeping the faith, and obeying His God in all circumstances, and when we do so, He that is capable of making all things possible would make the leaders of the land realize that there is something special about us and about Our God, so we appear to be weaker in this world, but we are stronger by Our God.
