There was a man named Abram in the Old Testament, Genesis, Chapter 15. He was a good man who owned many sheep and cattle. He lived with his wife Sarai in the land of Haran, but they had no children. One day, God came to Abram and said to him, “Abram, I want you to pack up all your things and leave your home. I want you to go to the land I will give you. I promise that I will bless you, and make your family great.
