When Abram heard that his nephew had been taken captive, he led forth his trained men, born in his house, three hundred eighteen of them, and went in pursuit as far as Dan. 15He divided his forces against them by night, he and his servants, and routed them and pursued them to Hobah, north of Damascus.16Then he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his nephew Lot with his goods, and the women and the people. 17After his return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, the king of Sodom went out to meet him at the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s Valley). 18And King Melchizedek of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was priest of God Most High. 19He blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, maker of heaven and earth; 20and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!” And Abram gave him one tenth of everything. (Genesis 14:14-20, NRSV)
This is an interesting snippet of the story of Abram/Abraham.
Here we hear about how Lot was taken captive and Abram goes to get him free and he is able to do this we hear at the end of the story because he is blessed by God.
And because he was blessed by God Abram gave a 10th of what he got to the priest and to God.
God has richly blessed all of us and what do we give to God?
