I like familiar. I travel the same way to work daily. I eat the same food. I buy the same ice cream. For me, familiar is good. I’m very uncomfortable with the unfamiliar. I’d much rather stick with what I know.
I’m quite sure Abram felt the same way. He was settled. His family was around. Everything was…well familiar.
Be careful though,
Familiarity could cause you to miss a move of God.
“Now the Lord saidt to Abram, ‘Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you'” (Genesis 12:1)
Try something new this week. Take a different route to work. Invite a co-worker you don’t normally converse with out to lunch. Call someone with whom you normally have lengthy text conversations. You never know. In leaving the familiar there may be a blessing in store.
