We often view the characters that God uses in Scripture as spiritual giants. But when we dig deeper, we find that they were just as human as the rest of us. What we find, however, is that when these heroes of the faith stumble, the focus is not so much on their stumble but on God's grace.
In today's lesson, we see from the lives of Abraham and Job how God's character shines in the face of the apparent failures of each of these men. More importantly, we see how God uses these failures to bring honor and glory to Himself and works even the mistakes for His own purposes.
