Week 6 Devotional Questions - 2 Kings 7:1-20

1. Read the story found in 2 Kings 7:1-20. Elisha and all of the prophets have a tough job - preaching truth. Do you sense a prophetic role in your life? Put another way, can you remember a time where it was difficult to tell someone about a truth in the Bible because of the way they would react? Discuss. 

2. What are some situations in your life right now where you think that you ought to be more involved in helping God bring about justice? What are some specific ways that your get involved in a particular effort over the next couple of weeks?

3. Consider the main question of the guard, "Why should I wait for the Lord."  Do you trust God to bring about justice in the world in your lifetime? Why might God want his people to "wait" for justice? How does this bring him glory and how is this to our benefit?

Prayer - Spend some time praying for wisdom from God for yourself and for your leaders. Repent of your involvement in injustice in this world and pray against systems of sin that you can think of. Pray for victims of sinful injustice in our world.
