“For I have chosen him so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice.” (Genesis 18:19). Here we are given a very plain purpose for God choosing Abraham; it is also the same purpose for anyone to be chosen. We are called by God to share the good news with others, beginning with our own families. One of life’s greatest achievements is to successfully pass on the torch of your faith to the next generation, teaching them “to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8).
