Genesis 14:21-24 - Choosing Wisely
And the king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the persons, but take the goods for yourself.” But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have lifted my hand to the Lord, God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth, that I would not take a thread or a sandal strap or anything that is yours, lest you should say, ‘I have made Abram rich.’ I will take nothing but what the young men have eaten, and the share of the men who went with me. Let Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre take their share.”
Genesis 14:21-24 ESV
Every day we are confronted with choices: from what we need to wear to which job to take, the decisions range from the major to the mundane. It remains in our time, as it has in Abraham’s, that the secret to choosing wisely lies in a matter between two kings.
