ASV notes on Genesis 12:4-5 and questions to consider

שלום חברי

God told Terah and Abraham to go to the land of Canaan, they stopped in Haran and God blessed them there with possessions and servants, Abraham started to become rich and he led a huge flock on their way to Canaan, Abraham was 75 at that time and I think he felt as strong as ever.

Even today God blesses people, in the same way, there are conditions to be met, but the blessings are real, both with inner peace and material wealth. God knows what you need, it is not things, it is a person, the way to a rich life on earth and a gate to heaven, His name is Jesus, Matthew 6:33

Abraham was curious to see the land that God promised him, so he didn’t settle down somewhere, and relaxed after this long journey from Haran to Canaan. No, he wanted to inspect the great land that God had promised him. Abraham traveled through the land as far as Shechem, he had seen the Canaanites who lived there and had been on the mountains, in the valleys and along rivers and lakes. Crossing the landscape like that with all his animals when in Shechem Abraham knew most of the land pretty well.

Consider questions, make your opinion by commenting

  1. Can you be as strong as Abraham?
  2. Is it bad to be rich?
  3. Is what you need the same as what you want?
  4. What do we need?
