Bible Story:

Genesis 12:10-20

Abram was worried that Pharaoh would kill him and take Sarai, so he told Sarai to lie and say she was only his sister. Abram’s lie brought great affliction upon Pharaoh and caused Pharaoh to send Abram and Sarai away.



Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
