This is God’s promise to Abraham.
I will make you into a great nationIf we want to receive God’s blessing, we must bless Abraham’s children. Christians full this promise by blessing the people of Israel. Blessing Israel is good, but a little odd, if it causes us to curse the rest of Abraham’s descendants.
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you (Genesis 12:2.3).
The Palestinians are also Abraham’s children. The Iraqis and Syrians are Abraham’s children too. Should we not be blessing them as well?
