The first reading today is a challenge. Why would God command Abraham to sacrifice his son? Is there a bigger message at stake here? What does this have to do with Lent? And what are we to make of all this? While the first reading certainly presents a challenge, understood in the proper context it can also help us to see how the wisdom of God can lead us to eternal life.
