Genesis 24:52-54 gives the account of the servant of Abraham who bows down and worships the Lord, for the Lord had brought him success in his master Abraham’s mission to find a bride for the master’s son, Isaac. After bestowing precious things and jewelry to Rebekah, the bride to be and her family, the servant resorted to eat and drink and stay the night. However, when he woke up, his first request was for him to sent back to the master.
Points to ponder:
When our mission for God, our master is fulfilled by the working of God himself in and through the situations and circumstances that surround us, giving us success, where do we choose to dwell. Often, I find myself wanting to linger in the laurels of success, failing to recognize to worship God, the giver of success and that my first request and response should be to go back to my Master God. How about you?
Genesis 24:52-54 (KJV)
52 And it came to pass, that, when Abraham’s servant heard their words, he worshipped the Lord, bowing himself to the earth.
53 And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother and to her mother precious things.
54 And they did eat and drink, he and the men that were with him, and tarried all night; and they rose up in the morning, and he said, Send me away unto my master.
