Abraham exemplified virtue, righteousness, humility and total surrender. He would rush from his tent and greet the traveler on the dusty road, beseeching them to enter his own tent and have “just a little bread”.

Abraham would treat the travelers as if they were honoring the tent with their visit. So in a profusely ingratiating manner, the prophet would receive his guests as gems dropped from Heaven.

“My Lord, if I have found favour in your sight, do not pass by your servant. Let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree, while I fetch a morsel of bread, that you may refresh yourselves, and after that you may pass on- since you have come to your servant (Genesis 18, 3-5).
