ABRAHAM'S WORSHIP


The Jews have a legend that when Abraham started on his journeys he saw the stars in the heavens and said, "I will worship the stars." But before long the stars set. Then Abraham saw the constellations—the Pleiades and the rest of them—and he said, "I will worship the constellations." But the constellations also set. Then Abraham saw the moon sailing high in the heavens and he said, "I will worship the moon." But the moon also vanished when her season was over.


Then Abraham saw the sun in all his majesty, coming out of his chamber like a bridegroom and rejoicing as a strong man to run a race. But when the day was spent, he saw the sun sink on the western horizon. Stars, constellations, moon, and sun—all were unworthy of his worship, for all had set and all had disappeared. Then Abraham said, "I will worship God, for he abides forever." (cf. Genesis 12:1)
