This is part 4 of the Abraham series. 

When we get impatient and get ahead of God, watch out for the heartache and damage that can result.

Title: Abraham #4: Three’s Company

Hook: Waiting on God is no easy thing. God promised Abraham that he would be the father of a great nation, but that promise required an heir. Abraham and his wife Sarah eventually got tired of waiting for God to act, so they took matters into their own hands. How long will you wait on God to come through for you before turning to your back-up plan?
