God's Faithful Grace

Laughter is such a marvelous sound. It reflects deep joy, deep happiness, and a delight that just bursts out. At the weaning feast for Isaac, there is another laughter – the laughter of scorn from the older brother (vs.9). Unnamed in this section, Ishmael sees his dreams dashed, and we see the pain of the consequences of sin. The episode is painful, but a reminder of sin’s sting. And we see the change that has happened in this man, as Abraham deals with Abimelech again (from verse 22). The foundation of the delight in God’s faithful mercy makes Abraham a changed man – open, honest, abounding in grace.
