G: "Well, I thought it was kind of boring."
Me: "Me too. All those list of family names. I always skip through those."
G: "Oh, I thought that was cool. I was talking about all the adultery stuff. That's all it talked about."
Me: (trying not to laugh), "Oh. That's right. We read Proverbs 6 where it talks a lot about avoiding adultery."
G: "Not just Proverbs. Jesus talked about it too in Matthew 6. It was on everything I read and it's SOOOOO boring. I hope tomorrow will be better."
Well, today he'll have to read Proverbs 7 which is all about avoiding adultery, but it also has some cool battle stories in Genesis. I've been following Jesus for most of my life and have read the Bible through many times, but today I read a Bible story that I have no recollection of ever hearing before. Did you know that Abraham, along with 318 of his family members, singlehandedly routed five evil kings that had just taken over four cities, including the one Lot (Abraham's nephew) lived in? What a stud. And why didn't I know that story? Read Genesis 14 for the full story.
