Keturah who’s name means ‘Incense.’ Keturah was Abraham’s third wife. Abraham most likely married Keturah for companionship after Sarah past way. However, it was not a marriage of convenience or comfort. It was through the six sons of Keturah that Abraham became the Father of many nations, beginning the fulfilment of God’s promise that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars of the sky.
Keturah did not marry Abraham knowing God would use her to fulfil His promise to the generations that followed. Keturah was a faithful, loyal, devoted wife who cared for her aging and dying husband.
Keturah is an example to us that God can use our present faithful service in the simple and small things to fulfil his future plans. Do not despise the day of small things, God has grate things in store. Zechariah 4:10
