And Terah took his son Abram and his grandson Lot, the son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, his son Abram’s wife, and they went out with them from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran and dwelt there. So the days of Terah were two hundred and five years, and Terah died in Haran. [Genesis 11:31-32]
Terah set out with his family for the land of Canaan, but he never got there. Instead he settled in Haran, and lost sight of where he was going. Ultimately, it was Abraham who had the faith to answer God’s call and go to the land of Canaan.
Don’t let yourself get sidetracked from what God has called you to. You could find yourself dying along the way.
