Questions For Discussion

1. Abram was called by God. What does it mean to be called by God? Have you ever felt called by God to do anything? How do you know it was God Who called you? How did Abram know it was God who called him?
2. Abram laughs at God when God suggests that he and Sarah in their old age, after years of being childless, will become parents. Have you ever laughed at God? Or with God? Explain.
3. Restate in your own words the covenant God made with Abraham. Is this Covenant still relevant and important today? Why?
