So Pharaoh summoned Abram. 'What have you done to me?' he said. 'Why didn't you tell me she was your wife? Why did you say, "She is my sister," so that I took her to be my wife? Now then, here is your wife. Take her and go!' Then Pharaoh gave orders about Abram to his men, and they sent him on his way, with his wife and everything he had.
Only God could have revealed to Pharaoh the truth and, when he was confronted with the truth, he did the right thing. Surely, Abram grew in his faith as he realized that God had intervened and the same thing happens as we see God at work in our daily lives. We also see that, even though he had been acting in disobedience, God increased his material possessions. There are those who think that God will not give things to His disobedient children and, as we see here, that is not always the case. There are also those who look at those who have been given much and automatically assume that they are worldly. We must accept the fact that God gives material things to whoever He wants and we cannot judge their relationship with Him based on what they have or have not been given.
