Genesis 24:50-67, Marriage of Isaac and Rebekah

Adventurous Spirit Narrative Lectionary Daily Devotions written by Kace Leetch from Clergy Stuff. Terror and excitement. These are what come to mind when I think of Rebekah’s decision. One day she’s gathering water, and the next day she’s being whisked off to a new land with people she doesn’t know to marry a man she’s never met. What an adventurous spirit! Every…

Genesis 24:28-49, Choosing of Rebekah

Groundedness in Uncertainty Narrative Lectionary Daily Devotions written by Kace Leetch from Clergy Stuff.

Genesis 24:1-27, Choosing of Rebekah

Sign Seeker Narrative Lectionary Daily Devotions written by Kace Leetch from Clergy Stuff. It sounds strange, I know, but I am a bit of a sign seeker.

She has gone back more generations than I can even comprehend, learning all she can about her (our) ancestors. I have never been a fan of knowing a list of names of people I know nothing about. But as…

Genesis 4:1-16, Cain Murders Abel

Minding My Own Business Narrative Lectionary Daily Devotions written by Kace Leetch from Clergy Stuff. There is a saying that helps me keep my head on straight sometimes. It says, “What other people think of you is none of your business.” It’s a great reminder that other people’s business is their own. I need only worry about myself and my own business. …

Genesis 3:14-24, Punishment

An Angry but Loving God Narrative Lectionary Daily Devotions written by Kace Leetch from Clergy Stuff. On one hand, this reads like a story of an angry God that kicked God’s children out of paradise as punishment for their sin. On the other hand, though, this story might be so much more. This is a story of a loving God doing everything…
