Abraham, the man who trusted God

This is the first in a series of three articles just for you that tell about Abraham and his commitment to God. We'll look at Abraham 's life and what makes him an important Bible figure. Open your Bible and join us!

The first book of the Bible is called Genesis. One of the people we learn about in Genesis is a man who was very faithful to God. His name was Abraham. His wife's name was Sarah, and they both had great spiritual courage. (You can find this account in chapters 11 and 12 of Genesis.)

They grew up in a place called Ur of the Chaldees. When Abraham's father became the head of the family, he moved them all to Haran, which was in the land of Mesopotamia. Lot, who was Abraham's nephew, moved with them. Their family raised sheep and goats and stayed there for some time.
