The story of the call of Abraham. Genesis 13: 1-3
The Lord said to Abraham to leave his country, his people and his father’s household to the land that he will show him. God made promises to Abraham to bless him and make him a great nation. He said he will bless whoever bless him and curse whoever curses him, that all the nation will be blessed through him.
So, Abraham went as the Lord had told him. He took his wife Sarah and his nephew Lot. He took all the possessions and everything he had acquired in Harran and they set out for the land of Canaan.
