Taking Matters Into Your Own Hands
Passage: Genesis 16:1–16:6, Genesis 17:1–17:8
Is there something in your life that you have a very specific way of doing and if anyone in your family or friend group tries to accomplish the task by another means, you get angry or refuse to let them do it? Well, the Bible is full of examples in which humans try to do something “their way”. And, almost every time, it fails. In those failures, God does not cast aside His creation; rather, He extends grace. Perhaps we should do the same with our family and friends.
