"Isaac's servants dug in the valley and discovered a well of fresh water there. But the herders of Gerar quarreled with those of Isaac and said, 'This water is ours!' So he named the well Esek, because they disputed with him. Then they dug another well, but they quarreled over that one also; so he named it Sitnah. He moved on from there and dug another well, and no one quarreled over it. He named it Rehoboth, saying, 'Now the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land.'" NIV translation
Isaac was a man of peace and patience as his servants dug wells but the water caused disputes. Instead of fighting for his rights, Isaac moved on until nobody contested his rights. It is interesting to note that he dug three wells and the number three is associated with the earthly display of God's will for men.
As Christians, we are often called upon to give up some of our comforts and rights in order to advance the gospel of peace. When those who oppose us ask us how we can do so, we have the opportunity to tell them about the peace we have found through Jesus Christ.
