The whole countryside is open to you. Take your choice of any section of the land you want, and we will separate. If you want the land to the left, then I’ll take the land on the right. If you prefer the land on the right, then I’ll go to the left.” (Genesis 13:9 NLT)
As soon as Lot has accumulated the wealth his need to depend on God’s leading (Abraham’s journey) had become pointless. He wants to settle down and have ‘life’.
As for as Abram is concerned, his life is his God and his eyes are on the Blesser not the blessings. Unless his God settles him, he don’t want to stop the exciting journey of God-dependence.
As soon as Abram proved his attitude, God spoke –
Go and walk through the land in every direction, for I am giving it to you.” (Genesis 13:17 NLT)
Lot has gone, time to go and walk thru’ the land; let’s go!

Place now your complete trust, hope and confidence in God and be blessed.
Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct. Galatians 6:4-5
Minding our own businesses brings great peace, contentment and respect.
We are not here to reach and train everyone, unless God puts specific people for that purpose in our lives.
We are not here to help everyone either but only to help those whom God places in our paths.
If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. Galatians 6:3
How sincere, faithful and diligent we could be in our actions, job, calling and relationships – brings wealth to us and honor to God!
It’s good to mind our own business!
