I Am Your Shield!

Abram put his faith in the Lord.

Genesis 15:6

God’s message to Abraham begins with a promise of continued protection, “I am your shield” followed by a promise of a reward. We witness a beautiful dialogue between God and Abraham in Genesis marked by its intimate and friendly qualities. God reassures Abraham that he will have an heir and his descendants will be as numerous as the stars. God’s abundant generosity shines forth as well as Abraham’s righteousness to believe in the promise of God. 

As we celebrate the Holy Family today, the story of Abraham, Sarah, and Isaac gives us an example of what it means to trust God with the protection and blessing of our family. We, too, are called to form families of faith who trust and believe in God’s promise of his continued presence in our lives. This faith provides the foundation for our obedience as we continually discern God’s will for ourselves and our families.

I will make your reward very great!
