Why do you think Abraham used the same tactic in Genesis 20 (calling his wife his sister) with Abimelech that he used with Pharaoh in Genesis 12? What was motivating him? Why didn’t he learn the lesson the first time around?
What are some perpetual sins that Christians tend to struggle with? What advice would you give to those struggling with those sins regarding how to avoid them? Why do we struggle so much with committing the same sins over and over again?
In Genesis 18:25, Abraham asks God, “Shall not the Judge of all the earth do what is just?” How was God just in destroying Sodom?

What is an example from your context where sin lures in and destroys lives?
