Real people, dealing with real problems... Abram runs to Egypt evidently without the guidance of God, and puts himself and his family in dangerous situations.  Finally, he returns to the Promised Land and recovers his spiritual sense, evidently learning from his Egypt experience.  Like any saint, slipping into sin can quietly happen, and are often the consequence of being distracted by problems or the promises of the world.  Like proper saints, acknowledging sin and returning via the way of repentance and obedience to the ways of righteousness, brought not only Abram, but will bring every other follower of God back home, with "a clean heart and a right spirit within".  The old ways as defined by the Lord, the old paths laid out by God, those paths of kindness, commitment, and right choices will lead to peace, a place for us in the spiritual Promised Land, and the blessings of God in our lives.
