Our time is characterized by the fact that so many people live outside their country of birth. War, disasters and political unrest have driven them away from their homeland.
But also the international situation we live in requires many to work for their companies outside their home country.
This contributes to an inner turmoil in the lives of the people, because many do not feel at home in the place they live, they have not found a true stand, neither in everyday life nor in religious life.
With this in mind, we can understand that it should not have been easy for Abraham to leave home and settle in a completely different country, even though he was well known with the nomadic life.
But now he was going to a strange country, a land God had intended for him, and because God commanded him to travel, Abraham travels.
Also we Christians are in the same situation. We cannot hold on to this earthly life if we will listen to Paul who says: Our home is heaven.
We travel every day to our Home. Do good works on the way. Help people and love people.
