This is the second in a series of three articles that tell about Abraham and his commitment to God. Last week we read about Abraham's unfailing trust in God in looking for and finding a new home. Here's what followed.

Abraham and Lot

God led Abraham and his wife Sarah and his nephew Lot to a new home near a place called Bethel in the land of Canaan. (You can find this account in chapters 12 and 13 of Genesis.)

Both Abraham and Lot were very wealthy. Not only did they have a lot of gold and silver, but both of them had large flocks of sheep and goats, and some other animals as well. They also had many people who worked with them to take care of the animals and to raise crops for food.

This new land was wonderful. There was lots of water. The soil was fertile. The book of Genesis says that it was so beautiful that it was like "the garden of the Lord" (13:10).
