The Essential 100 Day 6: Gen. 12

3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:3

All Abraham had to do was a little step of obedience to God.  When Abraham made that step, God came running and blessed him big time.  This verse stood out to me because that is what will happen to us if we are obedient in the small things God gives us.  God will help us grow and make us a bigger blessing to others.  Abraham was known for his great faith, but at the end of this chapter he lies to keep from getting killed.  I think this story is an important one to show that even a man of great faith can have fear moments. It takes great faith to pull up roots and move your entire family to another part of the earth that you have never seen before.  This is part of the character building process we all have to go through so that we ultimately can glorify God.  When we glorify God with our life, God will make us a blessing to many.
