Genesis 20:1-22:24~Matthew 7:15-29~Psalm 9:1-12~Proverbs 2:16-22

Genesis 20:3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night and said to him, "Behold, you are a dead man because of the woman whom you have taken, for she is a man's wife."

Genesis 21:17a And God heard the voice of the boy, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven...
In both of these instances, God shows concern for someone outside of what one might expect. I wonder how the original hearers reacted to these accounts. If we really hear these stories, and then take a look at how we expect God to act, how do our expectations measure up?
