Questions for reflection:

  • What are the idols to which our leaders are tempted to bow down?
  • What idols might there be in your life that need to be weeded out and repented of?
  • The theme of God’s sovereignty is again repeated. If we genuinely believe that God is sovereign and in control of everything, how should this change us?
  • How should we be living in light of the final judgment to come?
