Genesis 16 -- Abraham: The Birth of Ishmael

God had promised Abram and Sarai a son.

Just as he has promised to take care of our family's need.

But Sarai and Abram grew impatient or perhaps they thought they ought to take matters into their own hands for after all did not God instruct Adam to "guard and till" the Land? If then man shall eat by the sweat of his brow, it would be natural to take charge of his own fertility and to do what makes the most sense to him based on his own situation.

This would make sense with the things that God gave man charge over.

Where in Scripture does it say that God gave man charge over his children (or his wife for that matter) the way he gave him charge over the animals?

Nowhere.

A wife is a gift.

So are children.

And we ought to wait for the giver; neither forcing his hand nor refusing him.

That is the covenant.

This is Christian living.

This is love.
