Part 2: Why Leave & Go?

Last week we learned why God chose Abraham. He exercised responsibility where others failed to. God called Abraham to be a father because he was willing to both challenge the status quo and plead for the salvation of humanity at the same time. It’s about the time we learn this when we recall God’s first words to Abraham were to leave his father’s house and go to a new land. Doesn’t this seem a bit counter to his calling of being a family man?
