Questions to help you dig deeper into this message:
Read Genesis 20:1-18. What ministered to you most in this message?
When comparing the stories in Genesis 12:10-20 and Genesis 20:1-18 we see lots of similarities. Why didn’t Abraham learn the lesson the first time? Why don’t we?
Read Romans 11:29. Talk about what this means in light of all the Christians we’ve seen stumble, fall, and fail. Why would God desire to still use a sinner? How does 1 Corinthians 1:26-29 relate? What does Proverbs 13:15 declare about the consequences of sin?
Read Matthew 23:1-4 and Ephesians 5:15-17. Pastor Michael shared a story about a woman who brought her sugar-loving son to a wise man. The wise man asked her to return in a week so that he could speak with her son, because at the time he [the wise man] was still eating sugar. Why do people care more about what we are ‘doing‘ than what we are ‘saying‘?
Do you agree with this statement: “Integrity is who you really are, when no one is looking“? Why or why not?
When comparing Abraham’s predetermined strategy in Genesis 20:13 and Job’s in Job 31:1, what do we learn about drawing a line in the sand way before a time of temptation or trail comes our way? How does this help us be a man or woman of integrity?
