The story of Abraham is one of the most celebrated. He is known for being the patriarch of the nation of Israel, where he lived in the land of Canaan, and where his descendants dwelled in the Promised Land. The Bible says that this great man’s life was exemplary in every respect. He was a righteous man, faithful to God, and just.
In fact, it was due to Abraham’s righteous conduct that God promised to make him the father of a nation that would be as numerous as the stars in the sky. The Scripture says “And I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12:3).
God chose Abraham because he was ready to do what the Lord told him to do, and he was faithful to the end. He was a man that was ready to obey God’s call in his life, and this is why God chose him to be the father of a nation.
