Genesis 26 - Key

v22

And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the LORD hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.

This was a time of famine, and water was necessary for survival. This was especially true because the Lord had told Isaac not to go down into Egypt like people usually did in famine.

What really stood out to me in this chapter was that, when there was a conflict, Isaac avoided fighting by giving up what was rightly his and moving on. We should be like that.

Application

A few things we should never compromise, but sinful pride makes us want our own way whenever there's strife. More often, I'll humble myself by giving up my own way even when I'm right.
