The Story

We start the month in Genesis 13: 5-18.  God blessed Abram and his nephew Lot, with a large amount of flocks and herds-so many that the land they were on couldn’t sustain all of them.  The workers on each side were not getting along.  Abram and Lot knew it was time to separate.  Although God had promised Abram the land of Canaan and had a right to take whatever he wanted, Abram allowed Lot to choose first.  Abram leg go of the best land in order to make peace with his family.

Bottom Line: Prove you care more about others by letting go of “what’s fair”.  Sometimes choosing peace means letting go of what we want or our perception of ourselves.  Preserving the relationship is more important then protecting our own sense of fairness.
