Scripture: Genesis 12:4
So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him.
Lot didn’t have to follow Abram. He could have stayed in Harran. He could have gone back to Ur. But he chose to go with Abram. He decided to follow where Abram led. Why?
Because he could tell that Abram had a vision of where he was going. He had a plan. He was confident in what the Lord had told him to do. And Lot wanted in on it.
This verse is a simple sentence, but it tells us a lot (get it? A “Lot”?) about what we are to do for other people. We’re to set the example for them, to lead the way to Christ and to lead the way forward in God’s work.
Who can you inspire and take with you in what God has called you to? A family member? A friend? Your children? How about the young ones at your church?
If you’re following the Lord faithfully as Abram did, others will follow you. Who knows? You might have a Lot following you!
