Abraham Deceives Abimelech
Topic: Old Testament Scripture: Genesis 20:1–20:18
We all know that sending a couple off on their honeymoon doesn't guarantee a life of never-ending happiness. That Hollywood myth gets busted very quickly. A good marriage takes work, commitment and perseverance. That's why marriage vows are written the way they are. Truth is, you've got to fight for your marriage, because there are plenty of things that will work to bring it undone, including your own foolishness and sin. It seems this is a lesson that Abraham had to learn the hard way, and many of us have similar problems.
