Abram said to Lot, “Let’s not have fighting between us, between your shepherds and my shepherds. After all, we’re family. Look around. Isn’t there plenty of land out there? Let’s separate. If you go left, I’ll go right; if you go right, I’ll go left.”
Money…too much of it, can cause conflict in families.
This problem was solved by Abraham being generous. Lot….you choose….take what you want.
Why did Abraham do this, because his value was peace and joy in the family over wealth. He trusted God with the results.
Lot chose the best for himself, and it cost him his family.
