When the Faithful Fail

By Charles R. Swindoll


Genesis 12:7–20

What courage it must have taken for a 75-year-old man to pull up his tent pegs and strike out by faith. What a model of faith! But we must not forget that he was still fully human. When we look more closely at Abram, we begin to see his imperfections. We realize this icon of faith had feet of clay. When a famine hit, rather than standing firm in faith and trusting his God to sustain him and his wife, he fled to Egypt. We can learn lessons from faithful Abram's temporary and tragic slump into deceit and disobedience.
