Pharaoh and his household are punished with diseases.

Interesting that Abram gets his way after his dishonesty.

A shrewd adversary is a dangerous person to make your enemy!

Abraham’s Descendants

In verses 15-24, we read God’s famous promise to Abraham, “I promise that I will give you as many descendants as there are stars in the sky or grains of sand along the seashore” (v. 17).

WWID?

What would Isaac do?

Sacrifice himself to his father’s God (verses 9-14).

That’s more faith than I have.

Deep Faith

In verses 3-8, Abraham says, “The boy and I will go over there and worship, and then we will come back to you.”

When Isaac asks about missing a lamb, Abraham replies, “God himself will provide one.”

Both quotes indicate that despite God’s brutal request, Abraham continues to have faith in God’s goodness.
