Questions for Discussion

1)  God sends an angel that the donkey can see immediately.  Balaam only sees this angel of God later. Have you ever be sent an angel from God that you couldn’t see until later?  How do you recognize an angel sent from God? 

2) Can God speak through a donkey? 

3) Has God ever spoken to you through an animal or another human being?  How?
