Our reference story today is from Genesis 13:1-4, so if you can, read that and probably the preceding chapters to get a clear story. In this story, Abraham is coming from Egypt where he had gone, despite the Lord having commanded him earlier to go to Canaan. What had happened is, there had been a famine in Canaan, and Abraham chose to go to Egypt to escape it. The fact is, famine or no famine, he did not bother to consult the same authority that had commanded him to go to Canaan. He did what so many of us have done before. He looked across to the other side, saw affluence, and crossed over.
