This month’s Scripture writing plan will cover the close of one generation and the maturing of the next. We will read of Abraham and Sara’s deaths, the beginning of the love story of Isaac and Rebekah, and how Isaac repeats a sin of Abraham’s.

Scripture Writing Process for Genesis, Part 5
Read the passage provided each day. If the passage is long, feel free to choose one or two verses to write out and dig deeper into.
Use these questions to help guide you in your daily study:
- What does this passage say?
- What does this passage mean?
- What does this passage tell me about God’s character?
- How does viewing God in this way change the way I view myself?
- How should I respond to this truth?
You do not have to answer every one of these questions every day. Rather, use them as a guide to really dig into what the passage says so that you can properly interpret and apply God’s Word to your life. If you need additional help in mining the Word of God, please read this article on How to Study the Bible that goes into more depth on the inductive Bible study method we use in answering the above questions.
Finish your time in the Word by writing out a prayer thanking God for this teaching and asking Him to help you apply it to your life today.
