Questioning God.

Have your parents ever told you to "watch that tone" when referring to the way that you speak to them? Have you ever spoken to God with a tone of doubt, or anger, or even sarcasm?

When I read about Abram again, I noticed his tone with God...

Genesis 15:2 But Abram said, “O Lord God, what will you give me, for I continue childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” 3 And Abram said, “Behold, you have given me no offspring, and a member of my household will be my heir.”

Some of the older generation in our church were taught to never question God. They were taught that was disrespectful. I think I'm of a different mindset. I think God is big enough to handle any of my small questions.

Abram calls God out - how will this happen? And God is kind enough to answer.

Lord, let me be bold enough to ask and humble enough to know when to shut up.
