Lech Lecha

This is the part of the story where God tells Abram to leave his family and go to the place God will show him.  Here's what it might have said if it were being written now:
Now Adonai said to Abram:  Get out of town, leave your friends, your parents, and go to the place I'll show you [but I'm not showing you yet!!  You'll have to trust me on this one]
And if you do what I'm telling you, you'll be successful.  You'll have thousands of friends (on Facebook, at least), everyone will want to 'friend' you, and anyone who isn't nice to you is gonna be in serious trouble.
How does this sound?  Why do you think Abram believed it was God who was talking to him?  Do you think you would have done what Abram did?  Who do you listen to?  Whose advice do you follow?  How do you decide important things?

What do you think?
