The Power of Assumptions





Joshua 2:8-13

Discussion Starter:

Let’s say that a tragedy might hit your family and everyone could be killed.  But you given the chance to save your family by solving a riddle. We’d line up 100 people in front of you, pick the right person and everyone survives. Pick the wrong person… bad things happen.

All you knew about them was what they looked like, what their name was, and what their occupation was. Then we showed you the line-up. Among them were a judges, doctors, police officers, soldiers, pastors, teachers, family members, and a prostitute. Who would you pick?

Believe it or not, Joshua 2 describes a similar situation. And in that situation God picked a prostitute, Rehab, to save His people. That’s not who you’d assume God would choose, is it? A prostitute might be the least likely of the 100!

That’s what happens when you make assumptions. Looks can be deceiving. Until you carefully examine a situation, looking at it from multiple angles, you might not make the wisest choice.

3 Questions:

  • When was a time your eyes played a trick on you?
  • Would you rather someone assume good things about you and be disappointed or bad things about you and be surprised?
  • Why do you think God picked a prostitute in Joshua 2?

Chew on this:

If we shouldn’t make assumptions about people why are we also told to trust our instincts?
