Genesis 20:6-7 And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her. Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.
Obedience to God is so important. Abimelech obeyed God when Abraham and Sarah deceived him, and God rewarded him for that obedience by not destroying him. God has a reason for telling us to do things, and we should not question that, but instead obey Him right away.
