Amazingly, Abraham’s father had been an idolater, but the Lord separated Abraham from his idolatrous family,

And Joshua said to all the people, “Thus says the LORD God of Israel: ‘Your fathers, including Terah, the father of Abraham and the father of Nahor, dwelt on the other side of the River in old times; and they served other gods. Then I took your father Abraham from the other side of the River, led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his descendants and gave him Isaac” (Joshua 24.2–3).

The Lord takes care of the people who believe in Him and turn their backs on the ways of the world, even if that includes family.
