Genesis 20:8–13 (ESV)
Abraham and Abimelech
Abimelech rose early in the morning and called all his servants and told them all these things. And the men were very much afraid. 9 Then Abimelech called Abraham and said to him, “What have you done to us? And how have
I sinned against you, that you have brought on me and my kingdom a great sin? You have done to me things that ought not to be done.” 10 And Abimelech said to Abraham, “What did you see, that you did this thing?”
11 Abraham said, “I did it because I thought, ‘There is no fear of God at all in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife.’ 12 Besides, she is indeed my sister,
the daughter of my father though not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife. 13 And when God caused me to wander from my father’s house, I said to her, ‘This is the kindness you must do me: at every place
to which we come, say of me, “He is my brother.” ’ ”
Abraham early in the morning. “What have you done to us? And how have I sinned against you, that you have brought on me and my kingdom a great sin? You have done to me things that ought not to be done.” Abraham explains that Sarah is
actually his half-sister… so she is his sister. The way I look at it, it may be a half truth, but it is also half lie. There are still signs of a lack of trust in God.
I pray: O Lord, help me to trust you in good times and bad times. Help me to let you be God and for me to follow you. Amen.
