God has given us a wonderful world to live in and has showered us with all that we need to live a very comfortable life. What are we willing to share? Is God or our comfort more important to us? This is the test that God sets Abraham. Is Abraham willing to give his most precious gift from God back to him? Abraham shows that he is willing, he shows that he puts God first to the extent of being willing to sacrifice his son. The idea of killing a child is abhorrent to us but God does not require this, he requires our giving back what is precious to us, trusting that God will provide what we need. We produce more than enough food for all people in the world but people are hungry. Are we willing to put God first in our lives or will we just remain comfortable?
