Abraham showed Lot Mercy when they had a disagreement. (Genesis 13:8-10, NKJV)

  • One of the hardest times to show mercy is during times of disagreements.
  • Showing mercy with family is the hardest, but that is when it is needed the most.
  • Prosperity can bring fighting, pride, and problems—people often forget their prosperity is a blessing from God. (Genesis 13:1-2, NKJV)
  • The most mature person should be the first one to take these three steps:
  • Take the first step in trying to settle a problem, disagreement, or argument.
  • The goal is to settle the problem, not simply win. (Matthew 5:9, NKJV)
  • The most mature is willing to address the problem.

Abraham showed Lot Mercy when he got himself into trouble. (Genesis 14:13-16, CEV)

  • Abraham showed Lot Mercy when he messed up.
  • Abraham and Lot are a physical picture of you and I.
  • Most of the time we are a picture of Lot where we keep messing up—we forget where our blessings come from.
  • Most important it is a picture of what God did for us.
  • Jesus died for us – He took the worst so we could experience the best.
  • Jesus keeps rescuing and saving us even when we don’t deserve it. (Psalm 50:14-15, NKJV)

God showed Lot Mercy by delivering him instead of destroying him.

  • (Genesis 19:12, CEV; Genesis 19:14-16, CEV, Genesis 19:25-26, CEV)
  • God showed Lot mercy because of his salvation—his trust in the Lord.
  • Lot’s wife is a picture of taking God’s Mercy and Grace for granted.
  • Lot’s wife lost her effectiveness to help people taste and know how great God is—the result she was turned into a pillar of salt. (Matthew 5:13, MSG; Genesis 19:26, NKJV)
