From our Sages on the Parshah
And it came to pass after these things, that G-d did test Abraham (22:1)

Said Rabbi Jonathan: A potter does not examine defective vessels, because he cannot give them a single blow without breaking them. What then does he examine? Only the sound vessels, for he will not break them even with many blows. Similarly,G-d tests not the wicked but the righteous.

(Midrash Rabbah)
