Abraham did not always make perfect moves. In fact, often they were wrong, especially when he thought he’d start helping God with making His promises come to pass. He’s our perfect example–we all screw up. Like Abraham, accept that the promise is yours–eternal life (it’s the platform on which we play)–but don’t anticipate the journey or who you’ll be playing with along the way to the final destination–Heaven.
The definition of faith–“I k n o w n o t h i n g !” (Don’t forget the drawn out German accent while saying that.)
