On Tuesday, we went on a hike with our family, which makes us a group of 11 people (my bro-in-law had to work.) We went to a place called Chataqua park and hiked with 8 kids. It was a challenging hike. It seemed if we weren't in the sun we were climbing some steep hills or boulders. The kids were troopers, stuck with it, and we almost made it to the top! We hiked about 2 hours, and they did well, even Bethany, our 5-year-old with short legs!
Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”
So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On themountain of the Lord it will be provided.”
The Lord wrote on these tablets what he had written before, the Ten Commandments he had proclaimed to you on the mountain, out of the fire, on the day of the assembly. And the Lordgave them to me.
Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place?
[ The Transfiguration ] After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them.
