Searching for a Wife for Isaac

Genesis 24:1-14 NRSV

Abraham said to his servant…, “Put your hand under my thigh and I will make you swear by the Lord, the God of heaven and earth, that you will not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites…but will go to my country and to my kindred and get a wife for my son Isaac. (Genesis 24:2-4)

Seek the Lord’s guidance in all decisions…especially those with long-term consequences.
