Today is a special day for the Muslims of our town. Called Tabaski (Eid al-Adha in Arabic), it is perhaps the most important Muslim holiday of the year. On this day, they celebrate the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son, whom they believe to be Ishmael. God sent his angel to intervene and provided a ram as a substitute sacrifice. Those who are financially able in our town butcher an animal, usually a goat, and divide it among their friends, family, and the needy. Despite the discrepancies in their understanding with the biblical account, the key idea of a substitute sacrifice remains intact, and we can build upon this idea to share the Gospel. Pray that God would grant us opportunities to share about the ultimate sacrifice who took our place, Jesus Christ.
