It is written: “the Abrahamic covenant went into effect in 1943 B.C.E., when 75-year-old Abraham left Haran and crossed the Euphrates River.Â” However, Abraham had already left his home in Ur out of obedience to Jehovah. Why did it not start at that time? The Bible tells us Abraham postponed the arduous trip out of consideration for his fatherÂ’s poor health and remain in Haran until his fatherÂ’s death.Â Many Christians today likewise have the privilege of caring for aging or sick parents, some even having to make an adjustment in order to do so. When that is necessary, such ones can be assured that their loving sacrifices are Â“acceptable in GodÂ’s sight.Â”Â—1 Timothy 5:4. Lev. 19:32. - Bible Speaks
