The road less traveled

Re:Verse reading–Genesis 11:10-32 (day one)

“Terah took Abram his son. . .and they went forth together from Ur of the Chaldeans to go into the land of Canaan.”–v 31.

It has been rocky so far.  The relationship between God and men.  First, a flood to destroy the world.  Afterward, things aren’t much better.

Swiftly the race of men drifts away from God.  They (we) build cities and towers without any reference to God’s will or word.  Seeking glory for themselves, they begin to experience His active opposition.  (Genesis 11:1-9.  Last week’s lesson)

Then, a new thing begins!  Hopeful.  History-changing!  The story of God telescopes down to a single life.  Abram. The rest of Genesis, and the Bible, and history and eternity tells the story of this life.

Many travel the wide road that ignores God and seeks success apart from Him.  Only a few (and sometimes only one) travel the narrow road that believes God.  And the world is never the same!
