HEADING TO CANAAN

tereh

Genesis 11:31 (NKJV)
31 And Terah took his son Abram and his grandson Lot, the son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, his son Abram’s wife, and they went out with them from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran and dwelt there.

Everyone seems to talk about Abram(ham) leaving his country to go to the land of Canaan. But I have never heard anyone speak of Tereh, his father. Was he called, also, to go to the land of Canaan? I believe so. But that’s just me. But he was headed to Canaan, too, but settled in Haran. What could have caused that? I really don’t know, but what gets to me is that he settled. He didn’t continue on to the plan.

What are we settling for? Has God called us to do something, but we are settling for something lesser? Are we settling to just be comfortable because the journey was too hard? These are some hard questions that even I am forced to answer. Let us not settle and go on with God.
