Commentary: In today’s reading, Abram(Abraham) is introduced. No longer are we seeing how the Lord deals with the entire human race, but rather one man and his family. God asks a great sacrifice of Abram, but promises an even greater reward. For everything that Abram is asked to give up, the Lord promises to return to him. This promise becomes the Abrahamic Covenant. Abram’s journey begins with a trip to Egypt and we learn how Lot came to be in Sodom.
Focus Verses: 13:10-13 Lot was greedy in his choice. How? Knowing the result of his choice, how should that affect you when making choices in your life? When making choices, do you think beyond the immediate moment and how it could affect your future?
