Testing 1,2,3...
  The End Is Near! And So Is The Beginning!Get on the Winning Side!  
In the Torah G-d tests Abraham ten times. How was he able to pass the tests? By having faith and trust in G-d. This trust is a gift to all of us from our holy ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

In the Torah G-d tests Abraham 10 times!
1.G-d commands him to leave his home at age 75.6.G-d commands Abraham to circumcise himself at age 99.
2.G-d sends him to Canaan, than makes him leave because of a famine.7.Sara is again kidnapped and taken to King Avimelech's palace.
3.Sara is kidnapped and taken to Pharaoh's palace.8.G-d commands Abraham to send Hagar away.
4.Abraham has to fight four kings to rescue his nephew Lot.9.G-d commands Abraham to send Ishmael away.
5.A childless Abraham has to take Hagar for a wife.10.G-d commands Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac.

For passing all 10 tests, G-d blessed Abraham's children and gave them the 10 Commandments.
