Abram and Lot grow too wealthy to continue together and Abram graciously allows Lot to have his pick of the land as the two men separate. Lot unwisely chooses the area around Sodom, because of material benefits. Abram chooses the land God had already promised. God meets Abram and renews the promise He had already given to him.
We see the different attitudes of Abram and Lot and draw out lessons concerning the dangers of worldliness in the life of the believer.
