A True Beginning – The Mysterious Melchizedek Society (Genesis 14:17-24)

Genesis 14:17-24 - The Mysterious Melchizedek Society


Abraham returns from his rescue of Lot and encounters two kings: Bera of Sodom and Melchizedek of Salem, to whom Abraham gives a tithe of all.


Genesis 14:17-24     Matthew 5:44, 6:1-4     Romans 12:14     1 Thessalonians 4:9     Hebrews 7     1 Peter 3:9     Revelation 20:6


At the same time, think of the great compassion Abraham had shown to Bera! Godly compassion doesn’t mean we celebrate or accept wickedness. Today, some say that being ‘tolerant’ means that we must affirm and respect anything anyone does. That’s not what tolerance is and it’s not what we’re called to. We’re still supposed to recoil from wickedness, while also living out sacrificial compassion even towards undeserving people.
