Why did Abraham leave the land of Haran?

What was the motivation for his journey?

Thank you for asking a question on www.thisisyourbible.com

Abram left Haran because God told him to do so.
Genesis 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
Note that the calling of God to Abram came BEFORE he dwelt in Haran. Genesis 12:1 says that the LORD had said unto Abram...
Act 7:2,3 And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Haran,3 And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee.
I hope you have found this helpful.
May God bless you,
