Questions about the interpretation of the Akedah

This is my first post here, so I apologize if I’m making any mistakes. (I hope I’m doing this right)

What is the general consensus about the moral? At least, what does everyone here think? When I was a kid, I thought the point was that G-d didn’t want Abraham to blindly follow, but to think for himself and see the wrongness in killing Isaac, even if G-d tells him to do it. I’m starting to think I was projecting my own ideals on onto the story.

I had more of a secular upbringing and my parents let me think up my own conclusions when it came to interpreting the Tanakh. What is taught about this story in your households or at Hebrew school?
