Abraham Deceives Abimelech (Genesis 20)

Scripture Text (click to open in a new window):

Genesis 20

Questions:

1. When have you repeated the same mistake twice?

2. How can you identify with Abraham in this story: His all-too-human relapse? His repeated fib? His unwitting test of God’s promise? The irony of the rescuer now needing to be rescued?

3. Who in your life is (or has been) an “Abimelech” – one who bravely sets you straight? Where might God be calling you to be an Abimelech?

4. When have you made a judgment about someone or a group of people (verse 11) only to be embarrassed later?

Interesting fact: Abraham is the first person to be called a prophet in Scripture.
