Genesis 18:13-14 - Is anything too hard for the LORD?

NIV Then the LORD said to Abraham, "Why did Sarah laugh and say, 'Will I really have a child, now that I am old?' Is anything too hard for the LORD ? I will return to you at the appointed time next year and Sarah will have a son."

We think that since people in the Bible were pre-modern, superstitious people that it was easy for them to believe. The Scripture actually paints a different picture. We find Sarah's laughter to be a nervous reaction to a promise from God that was preposterous. Have a child at her age? Impossible! Yet when Sarah had her child, she named him Isaac - which means "laughter".

God is in the business of turning our laughter of skepticism to the laughter of joy, because for God, all things are possible.

Proverbs 12:16 - A fool shows his annoyance at once

NIV A fool shows his annoyance at once,
but a prudent man overlooks an insult.

Self-control is a characteristic of wisdom. When we react too quickly and with annoyance, it makes us look foolish.

When we take the time to listen, answer with patience, and overlook insults, we act wisely.

Instead of closing the door with insults, we are to leave the door wide open for reconciliation through wisdom.
