With God’s blessing, the flocks of Abraham and Lot grew large. It became increasingly difficult to find adequate grazing land; and sometimes the servants of both men engaged in quarrels.
Abraham said to Lot, “We’re family, we shouldn’t argue and our servants shouldn’t quarrel with each other. Let’s separate. You choose the area you want and I’ll go in the opposite direction. So, Lot chose the fertile plains of the Jordan Valley; and Abraham headed for the hill country.
Again, God assured Abraham of a future that included all the land he could see and descendants that were as numerous as the stars in the sky. [Reflection based on the Bible Reference – Genesis 13:2-18]
