Don’t you just love it when someone expects you to make their emergency your priority, especially when that “emergency” is a result of their poor decision making? Has anyone ever asked you to lie for them in order to protect their interests?

Abram seems to be traveling down a slippery slope here. Apparently his wife, Sarai, was  a real looker. At the end of Genesis chapter 12, upon entering Egypt, Abram expresses his fear that the ruling Pharaoh will kill him and take Sarai into his harem. A likely scenario under other circumstances, I suppose, but not a very legitimate worry after all of the things that God has promised Abram.

I guess it’s easy to praise God and rest in His promises when things are safe and easy.  Let’s stretch that faith as we enter unpredictable experiences.
