Part 3 of 5. In this section, we have the only recorded military action of Abram in the Bible. The contrast here is apparent. Why were the other kings fighting? They fought for wealth and power. Abram goes to war for his family, to set the captive free. He has no aspirations to take power or wealth for himself but only wants to save his nephew. Godly men and women are moved to fight, not for their gain but to rescue others.
