Blessing – September 22, 2019

Scripture: Genesis 12: 1-9

“Leave your land, your family and your father’s household… I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.” (Genesis 12:1-2)

Leaving everything we have known before to set out for the unknown can feel unsettling, to say the least. But at 75 years old?! Abram trusted this new path–this new way–and the promise of God’s presence and blessing anywhere. We take the first significant step on our journey with God when we accept a blessing that we believe is too large for us to deserve and a responsibility that we feel is too large for us to fulfill.
