In Genesis 11:31 I saw something I have always missed. Terah, Abram’s father, intended to move his family from Ur of Chaldea to Canaan. But when they came to Haran, they settled there. In chapter 12 God clearly directs Abram to leave Haran and go to Canaan. Abram obeyed. There were no moving companies or U-Haul trucks. Moving wasn’t easy for Terah nor Abram. But Terah set out for Canaan, but he got content partway there. He settled. Abram uprooted his family and finished the move. Where have we settled? What job do we need to finish?

One thought on “Terah Settled

    That is a good word. We settle for less than God’s best far too often. We find temporary happiness in the things of this world when fullness of joy is available to us in God’s presence.
