1 The LORD said to Abram: "Go forth from the land of your kinsfolk and from your father's house to a land that I will show you.
2 "I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.
3 1 I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you. All the communities of the earth shall find blessing in you."
4 Abram went as the LORD directed him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran.
Reflection: God really did call this man out. He asked him to change his entire life. In return God promised him greatness. Imagine being told that you will be made a great nation. What does that mean? I wonder if Abram doubted at all. He was already 75 years old and people were no longer living 600 or more years. At 75 he was told that he would a great nation. I would have wondered how. If I am childless now how in the world could God make a great nation out of just me. Abram wasn't like me, he trusted and left his home land. He went were God wanted him to go. Dear God, please help me to be strong in my faith like Abram and to trust you to lead me where I need to go.
