Against Ammon. The Ammonites and the Moabites were born out of an incestuous relationship of Lot, Abraham’s nephew, with his daughters (Gen. 1930-38).

She is my sister. In a moment of weakness and fear, Abraham did not reveal that Sarah was his wife. By doing this, he not only put her at risk, but God’s entire project for humankind. With Abraham and Sarah, the Lord intended to create a people, through whom the Savior would be born.

Because of this, He did not allow Abimelech to touch her.

This teaches us to always have the courage to tell the truth, even when we could be adversely affected by people’s reaction.

“White lies” and “half-truths” will cause damage. This is why our response should be a clear yes or no.
