Going Deeper into Respect: Week 2/Day 3

Freedom to Choose

Prayer of Praise:

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise.

Psalm 100:4

Sovereign
:superlative in quality: excellent
:of the most exalted kind: supreme
:having generalized curative powers
:of an unqualified nature: unmitigated
:having undisputed ascendancy: paramount
:possessed of supreme authority
:unlimited in extent: absolute
:enjoying autonomy: independent

God leaves nothing to chance. Every choice He allows, yours or others, is allowed for His purpose and the good of His people.

Write a prayer praising God’s sovereignty in all things.

Return to your prayer of praise daily. Add to it as you feel led.

Day 3:

Read Genesis 14:8-16

What happened to Lot while he was dwelling in Sodom?

What did Abram do when he found out?

How do Abram’s actions reflect a respect for Lot’s choice?

Have you known someone who made a choice you knew would turn out badly?

How did you respond? Did your response reflect respect for the person? Explain.
