Abram was 75 years young when God challenged him to leave behind country, extended family, and his inheritance for the Promise of God. God promised a new land, a new nation, and God’s blessing. Abram said “yes”, guided by God Abram went on a journey of trust.
So, to, we are invited by God on a journey of trust. God will guide us and bless us so that we can be a blessing to others. To be a blessing:
-we will be gracious (even to those who merit no grace)
-we will be merciful (even to those who merit not mercy)
We will walk a different path in the footsteps of Jesus who came into the world not to condemn the world, but in order that all the world may be saved. (John 3:17)
