Lesson 7 -- third quarter 2011
July 17, 2011
"The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee" -- Practically speaking, how shall I avoid (or escape) this kind of self-deception?
"For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee" -- Can I identify with that kind of treatment of my brother?
"As thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee" -- Does that encourage me or frighten me?
What do I know about showing compassion? Especially when judgment seems so fitting and deserved?
Who shall deliver me? Or do I not need deliverance?
How do I know whether or not my setbacks and calamities are God bringing me down?
Does anyone need deliverance from me?
Am I expected to deliver anyone? Why or why not?
