These 2 screenshots are a synopsis of the events described – none of which are actually about Sarah.
Genesis 23:1 – 25:18
Kings I 1:1-31
A person is known not only by their life, but also (perhaps primarily) by their LEGACY.
Sarah affected many lives to follow.
The reading provides highlights of that impact.
Signifying an inheritance for the Jewish people.
Also signifying that God’s promise of the land to Abraham would be fulfilled through purchase.
We know that the promise is also fulfilled through war.
This was a momentous legacy she left.
That, too, is part of her legacy, that she united Abraham with her when childless, and that Abraham fell in love with her.
If you are good you are remembered forever.
If you are bad your memory is obliterated.
That is true but perhaps one can allow that their loved ones do remember.
The rest of the world will not, as a practical matter, know the private stories.
They want to replace God with statues of themselves.
Even to the point of explaining how they use language to reign without our knowledge.
Just look at the Bible.
Honor God – and not man made gods.
Be kind to other people – not shitty.
They see themselves as genetically of a different reality – half man, half God – wanting to be omnipotent, needing to subordinate and enslave humans.
When there is no man to defend men, and there is no loyalty between man and wife and child, “the state” – the cabal, The Family, substitutes its breast for mother’s.
It is a separate and secret state with its own judicial system.
They must be exposed for what they are.
And then, in the end, we can finally forget all about them.
We will one day remember the (mostly totally quiet) heroes.
“And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne unto Abraham, making sport.”
This is to show the world that God can do anything.
But the word “laughter” has the same root as “sport” and this is the sense of it in Genesis 21:9.
Troubling question aside (why punish child for parent) Biblical punishment is harsh.
The implication: If he was under molested in early childhood by his elder brother, God protected his psyche from the pain.
Blindness – he was shrouded to some extent from knowing it.
