Monday, June 11

Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you have become her children.—1 Pet. 3:6.

 

Although Noah and his three sons each had only one wife, polygamy was practiced in patriarchal times. In many cultures, sexual immorality became a way of life, even being incorporated into religious rites. When Abram (Abraham) and his wife, Sarai (Sarah), obeyed God and moved to Canaan, that land was filled with practices that made a mockery of marriage. Jehovah therefore decreed that Sodom and Gomorrah be destroyed because inhabitants of those cities practiced or condoned gross sexual immorality. Abraham took the proper lead in his family, and Sarah set a fine example by submitting to her husband’s headship. (1 Pet. 3:3-5) Abraham made sure that his son Isaac married a worshipper of Jehovah. Similar concern for true worship guided Isaac’s son Jacob, whose sons became the forefathers of the 12 tribes of Israel. w16.08 1:10

Just a side point, I found the thought that whilst Abraham had complete faith in Jehovah that he could and would ressurect Isaac, Abraham didn't know when. Hours, weeks, days, years, decades.? He knew the promise, but not the when... It makes the faith Abraham showed in Jehovah's promise that much more interesting to meditate on.
