Romans 11

Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness. Otherwise you too will be cut off. (Romans 11:22)

A Proper Covenant Theology

14 “Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failedEvery promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed. 15 But just as all the good things the Lord your God has promised you have come to you, so he will bring on you all the evil things he has threatened, until the Lord your God has destroyed you from this good land he has given you.” - Joshua 23:14-15 (NASB)

Stop. Go back. Re-read that passage from Genesis. God has just finished being awesome. Why is Abraham all worked up about descendants? Isn't God enough? He is. But Abram laments that He will have no one heir to pass Him on to (Prov 13:22). Abram is not saying the heir is more important than God but that God as reward is most glorious when He is an inheritance to children. Yes I did say that.
