Genesis 15: 1-5

2 But Abram said, "O Lord GOD, what good will your gifts be, if I keep on being childless and have as my heir the steward of my house, Eliezer?"

3 Abram continued, "See, you have given me no offspring, and so one of my servants will be my heir."

4 Then the word of the LORD came to him: "No, that one shall not be your heir; your own issue shall be your heir."

5 He took him outside and said: "Look up at the sky and count the stars, if you can. Just so," he added, "shall your descendants be."

Reflection: The pain of not having a child must be so great! I have not ever had that issue and yet I can only imagine that longing for a child must be painful. Abram had to trust God not matter what. How hard that really is! So often I find that same trust hard to accomplish because of the children. I am always amazed though that God can really make anything happen.
