Attuned to the Voice of God
“Note that when God called Abraham, Abraham obeyed the call. He answered, “…Behold, here I am.” Abraham was a man whose ear was in tune with the Voice of God. No character in the Old Testament or in all of history is more interesting than Abraham. He is reverenced by the Jews as their father through Isaac, and by the Arabs as their father through the son of Hagar. He is also called the father of the faithful (Galatians 3:7).”
