Why does the Torah see fit to inform us that Rivka hurried to lower her pitcher and to empty it into the trough, and that she ran to the well to draw water for the camels?


She acted just like Avraham, who hurried and ran 1 to serve his guests (See beginning of Vayeira), and whose house she was destined to enter. 2


Lev Eliyahu (Bereishis p.80): even without rushing, it would take only a moment! One who loves Chesed wants to do it a moment earlier. The Torah reveals that due to this she merited to become Rivka Imanu.
