Genesis 13:5-14:24

How gracious of Abram to offer first choice of the land to Lot, even though it had all been promised to Abram and his descendants. And, of course, how gracious of God that he rewarded Abram by renewing his promise.

Then, Abram sets off to save his nephew, even though this put him and his men at risk. Finally, we see that he's generous with his possessions, giving a tenth to Melchizedek and gave all the goods he won to the king of Sodom, even though they were offered to him. Again, of course, God provides for Abram where he was too generous to hoard for himself. Abram's a great guy, and God's even better!

Heavenly Father, thankyou for the example of Abram and the way he trusted you. Help me to be the same. Thankyou that you hold to your promises, and reward those who follow your will even when it doesn't seem sensible. Amen
