Abram trusted God; and his choices not only exhibited a character that pursued peace, but also faith in the ability of God to fulfill His promises.
So Abram moved his tent and came and settled by the terebinth trees of Mamre, which are at Hebron, and there he built an altar to the LORD.
Suggesting they separate, Abram gave his nephew first choice of land available. Lot’s choice demonstrates the stark contrast between his character and that of his uncle, Abram.
So Abram said to Lot, “Please let there be no strife between you and me, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we are brethren. Is not the whole land before you?
Abram demonstrates that he had learned confidence to live the life of faith and eagerly anticipate God’s unfolding plan.
