It's interesting to contrast the lack of comment by our sages regarding the great war of the 5 kings vs the 4 kings, of last week's portion, with the ocean of comments by our sages regarding the first story of Vayera this week, namely Abraham's legendary hospitality. The Torah perspective of history is such that war is a necessary evil but the focus should be on highlighting acts of lovingkindness, best exemplified by our patriarch Abraham, the paragon of chesed, kindness.

They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery and this is what Abraham hoped to achieve with his life's work. He was inspired by his observing God's merciful providing for all living things, and dedicated his life to emulating the creator.
