The Seven-Fold Promise to Abram HD

Genesis chapter 12 begins as God calls Abram to leave his life behind and begin a new one in the land that God would show him. God promises to bless Abram when he leaves his old life behind. The promise has seven elements. The first three are what God will do for Abram. The fourth and middle element is a command to Abram; he is to be a blessing to others. The last three are towards others as they come into contact with Abram. What can we learn about Abram’s relationship with God and others through this promise?
