March 22, 2018 (Gen 17:3-9)

Abraham is mentioned in both readings for today. Pres. Jimmy Carter, a Christian, hosted Anwar Sadat, a Muslim, and Menachim Begin, a Jew, at Camp David. All three men claimed Abraham as their common father in the faith. Muslims through Ishmael and Jews and Christians through Abraham’s other son, Isaac. Thus, we should be treating each other as brothers of a common father not as rivals. What is your personal attitude toward Muslims and Jews? Do you see them as brothers or rivals?
