“Upper” days lift our spirits and send them soaring. “Downer” days leave us sad and discouraged. On a few occasions, we get both extremes on the same day! We start the day elated, but as the day wears on, everything turns upside down. The events recorded in Genesis 18 represent one of those “upper-downer” days for Abraham. By the end of it, Abraham must have felt mentally, emotionally, and spiritually exhausted! As we face our own upper-downer days, we can learn from Abraham’s experience how to put things in proper perspective and find our balance.
