Because of the covenant God made with him, Abraham has been called β€œthe father of the faithful” (Doctrine and Covenants 138:41) and β€œthe Friend of God” (James 2:23).

Millions today honor him as their direct ancestor, and others have been adopted into his family through conversion to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Yet Abraham himself came from a troubled familyβ€”his father, who had abandoned the true worship of God, tried to have Abraham sacrificed to false gods.

In spite of this, Abraham’s desire was β€œto be a greater follower of righteousness” (Abraham 1:2), and the account of his life shows that God honored his desire.

Abraham’s life stands as a testimony that no matter what a person’s family history has been, the future can be filled with hope.
