Our Faith Walk

Today's Scripture

We read in Scripture: “So Abram said to Lot, ‘Let’s not have any quarreling between you and me, or between your herdsmen and mine, for we are brothers. Is not the whole land before you? Let’s part company. If you go to the left, I’ll go to the right; if you go to the right, I’ll go to the left’” - (Genesis 13:8-9).

Thoughts for Today

Many things can set us back in our faith walk. Sometimes they are distractions, such as busyness or even laziness. But sometimes our obstacles stem from our willful nature: self-centeredness, disobedience and even disbelief.

When Abraham leaves Egypt in Genesis 13, he returns physically and spiritually to the place where God had originally called him. Yet Abraham once again faces a challenge.

Abraham’s nephew, Lot, allowed his greed and self-centeredness to disrupt both his relationship with Abraham and with God. Because Abraham trusted in God’s promised blessings, he refused to quarrel over resources with Lot.

We read in Scripture: “So Abram said to Lot, ‘Let’s not have any quarreling between you and me, or between your herdsmen and mine, for we are brothers. Is not the whole land before you? Let’s part company. If you go to the left, I’ll go to the right; if you go to the right, I’ll go to the left’” (Genesis 13:8-9).

Lot allowed selfish ambition to weaken his faith—and in his weakness, he became more influenced by the sinfulness of his new neighbors in Sodom and Gomorrah than by God’s commandments.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, I pray that I would not allow selfish ambition to weaken my faith. Help me not to be influenced by the sinfulness of those around me. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
