Abram was might good to his nephew Lot. First he gives his first pick of the land to take his livestock and household to, then he launches a rescue mission to go save him after he war of 4 kings against 3 ends with Lot being take captive. Abram wasn't in the war, but when he hears that Lot has been taken, he take his men and goes to fight to get Lot back. It makes me wonder if we saw his nephew a bit like a son sense he had no children of his own.
Abram could have left Lot to fend for himself, praying that God would take care of him or falling back on the professed future that Abram had. He didn't though. He risked everything to save his family.
That makes me think of the times when we pray and ask God to act, and his response is for us to act as well. God doesn't always want us to just sit around and ask him for things. Many times, we are part of the answer to our own prayers. We have to stand up and do something to help things happen in this world. We can't just wait for things to happen.
Only God knows what life will bring, but our responsibility is to seek God's guidance on when we wait and when we act.
