Now that we have seen Abram’s family history and the initial giving of the Abrahamic Covenant, we will learn about some more of his travels, his dealing with Lot, and his interactions with the peoples around him.We do not find the gospel in every passage in the Bible. But what we do find, especially in the Old Testament, can give us wisdom that leads us to salvation (2 Tim. 3:15). Furthermore, what we find there reveals God’s evaluation of different ways of living and can help us avoid “boneheaded” decisions like those made by Lot. Those decisions might seem right at the time but looking back we will see that they were stupid. Reading Scripture and thinking about what we read will help us gain godly experience without having to make so many of those bad decisions ourselves. Take Abram’s character as the main lesson: he was peaceable, generous, kind, a man of God-centered worship and integrity, and one who wanted God to be honored above all else. He recognized that the blessings in his life came from God. Where did this originate in Abram? No doubt it started with his relationship to God. He was a man of faith, and God blessed him in that faith. Each of us ought to look at our lives and see if we are like Abram.

Our Scripture reading was found in Song of Solomon 1-17.
