Unsung Heroes, July 29: Balaam

Discussion Questions

Who are some people who are seen both as a hero and as a villain?

When has someone not taken your “no” as a final answer?  How did that feel?

When have you missed something God was trying to tell you?

When has it seemed as though God’s answer has changed?


Acting on the Word

When someone tells you “no” this week, accept that answer; don’t try to change their mind.
