Divine Love — never failing

For the Lesson titled "Love" from January 28 - February 3, 2013

Isaac, perhaps the least-known of the Old Testament patriarchs, will become a better-known friend to students of this week’s Bible Lesson titled “Love.” Two extended narratives from Genesis are at its center (see Section 2 and 3, Genesis 24, citation 7, and Genesis 26, cit. 10). 

God is Love, and unerringly leads Abraham’s servant when he is sent out to find a wife for Abraham’s son Isaac. Abraham, his servant, Rebekah, and Isaac in turn take steps that lead to the fulfillment of divine Love in their lives. Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “Love inspires, illumines, designates, and leads the way. Right motives give pinions to thought, and strength and freedom to speech and action” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 454 , cit. 6). Isaac’s character, both patient and active, is revealed when we read that he “went out to meditate in the field at the eventide” (Genesis 24:63 , cit. 7), and, of his relationship with Rebekah, that “he loved her” (verse 67 ).
