Our Best Defense

In late January 1956, during the tense days of the Montgomery Boycott, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. could not sleep. A threatening phone call had terrified him. So he prayed, “I am here taking a stand for what I believe is right. But now I am afraid. The people are looking to me for leadership, and if I stand before them without strength and courage, they too will falter, I am at the end of my powers….I can’t face it alone.”

Abram’s nephew was in a lot of trouble. The kings of Sodom and Gomorrah, where Lot lived, had been overtaken by a group of raiding kings. They sacked Sodom, captured Lot and his household, and then fled north.

When Abram heard that his brother’s son had been kidnapped, he rounded up 318 trained servants, chased the kidnappers and rescued Lot.
