Go, for your benefit
The acts of the forefathers are a precursor for their descendants.
Everything that the forefathers of the nation underwent is a precursor to their descendants in all following generations, [guiding them] how to act and behave.
Abraham was the father of many nations, the original Patriarch. He underwent ten trials from God in order to test the greatness of his faith.
The final trial was the hardest of all; the Binding of Isaac.
The first trial was “Go, for your benefit, from your land and from your birthplace and from your father's house, to the land that I will show you.”
God intended that Abraham reach the Holy Land. The first steps he took were here, in Elon Moreh (Genesis) .
Everyone goes through trials in his life, but what is important is how we perceive the trial and what we do with it.
You can either choose to be a pessimist and see every opportunity as a difficulty or by contrast, to be optimistic and see every difficulty as an opportunity for growth.
