Sojourning Into the Land of “Unfamiliar”

Today, I’m reminded of Abraham. God told him to leave his family’s house and all that he knew to go to a place that would be shown to him. It wasn’t like God said leave your family and move to Egypt or some other concrete place near the Mediterranean. No, God said leave all that you are familiar with to go to a place that I will eventually show you. If I was Abraham, I don’t know if I would have been able to leave everything and follow- but that is exactly what Abraham did. He left all that he was familiar with and He left to go to a place that he had no idea existed.
