Just How Great Was Melchizedek?

Read the Bible in a year by reading Hebrews 7 today.
The Bible tells us to think on the greatness of Melchizedek. The writer of Hebrews said,
Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils (Hebrews 7:4).
We might think that Abraham was the greatest man living on the earth at the time, yet, there was another man, of whom we do not know very much, but the Bible indicates in the passage above and on through verse 10, that Melchizedek was greater than Abraham! Why then did the Lord call Abraham and use him to bring the promises into the world? Why does the Bible not say very much about Melchizedek?
We do not know. God has His reasons for doing what He does. He had his own purposes for Melchizedek and other purposes for Abraham. Do you believe that God did the right thing? Is He doing the right thing in your life?
