Jesse Tree - December 3, 2020 - Day 5
Thursday, December 3
“But the Lord’s messenger called to him from heaven, ‘Abraham, Abraham!’ ‘Yes, Lord,’ he answered.
‘Do not lay your hand on the boy,’ said the messenger. ‘Do not do the least thing to him. I know
now how devoted you are to God, since you did not withhold from me your own beloved
son.’” Genesis 22: 11-12
The ram depicted on today’s ornament is the sacrifice God provided Abraham
when he saw Abraham was willing to give up his only son, if that is what God
required of him. Read about Abraham and Isaac in Genesis 22:1-19.
