Balancing Belief, Boldness, and Mercy
- Speaker: Bryant Bailles
- Summary: In 1 Kings 13, God calls a young prophet of Judah to speak against king Jeroboam and the idols he built in Israel. After doing as God commanded with Jeroboam, as the young prophet is going back to Judah, an older prophet finds him, deceives him and witnesses the consequences of his disobedience. In this lesson, we consider how these events teach us the importance of what we believe and the importance of being bold and merciful in teaching others.
- Passage: 1 Kings 13
