Chapter OneAbraham Follows God
Genesis 12:1–9; 15:1–6; 21:1–7
Abraham was a good man who trusted God. God told Abraham, "I want you to leave your home and your country and go to a new land I will show you."
Going to a new place was scary, but Abraham chose to trust God.
Abraham and his wife, Sarah, packed up all their things. They gathered their sheep and cattle and traveled a long way. They took everyone in their house, including Abraham's nephew Lot and all of his animals.
When they arrived in the new land, Abraham and Lot could not find enough food for all their animals.
Again, Abraham chose to trust God. "Lot," Abraham said, "you can have the best land, and I will move to a different place." And he did.
God told Abraham that Abraham and Sarah would have a baby. That was hard to believe because Abraham and Sarah were old!
Abraham chose to trust God. When Abraham was 100 years old, Sarah had a baby boy, and they named him Isaac.
