Genesis 14:14 KJV
And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants , born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan.
Lot was not Abram’s son, he was his nephew. He had taken Lot in since the day the boy lost his dad, Haran (Abrams brother). At the time, only Abram had a relationship with the Lord. He was accustomed to hearing God’s voice directly.
Though no particular word had come from the Lord regarding Lot, Abram was determined never to lose him. To the extent that even when the young man was taken captive, Abram risked the life of his entire household to save Lot.
This is remarkable! Many of us have been Christians for long but have done nothing to help ‘rescue’ immediate family members. When was the last time you prayed for that wayward cousin/nephew?
Bible admonishes us to snatch such people from hell fire. Instead of being experts at complaining about the same people, why don’t you try to be different. Pray for them, mention them daily to the Lord, win their souls for God. We NEED to care for family and the household of faith.
Have a blessed week. #CarllyDevotionals #1ChapterADay #OCP
