August 30 Genesis 24 The original reality show of Millionaire Bachelor

Simply reading this chapter only gives a part of what's happening, but since we have the whole scripture, and I've read it before, I know what Rebekah and her family are like. We have a vague description of Abraham's servant taking ten camels loaded with stuff and going off in search of a wife for Isaac. He parks the camels at the local watering hole waiting for an eligible lady to arrive. Now let's translate that to modern times. The servant of a wealthy man parks 10 stretch limos loaded with stuff in front of McDonalds waiting for a girl to show up and treat him kindly. Right! This servant is very generous with the things he has, I wonder if he just wanted to buy the first girl so he could be done with it and go home. Because when you really think about it, that's exactly what happened. Rebekah and her brothers see the wealth and are immediately attracted there. I think the desired 10 day delay was designed to get more stuff from the traveler. In the end we find there is love between Rebekah and Isaac, but the family traits of scheming still run in her and they're passed down to their son.
