Who are you to me?

Genesis 20:13 (NKJV)
"...I said to her, ‘This is your kindness that you should do for me: in every place, wherever we go, say of me, “He is my brother.”’”

Observation:
Despite God's promise and protection, Abraham was still fearful..."they will kill me because of my wife..." This was the second time he told Sarai to refer to him as her brother. How could he ever have a son if he kept giving his wife away as a buy-off to avoid potential conflict?

Application:
I've never liked being introduced to people as "pastor." I've thught that the ttle carried too much baggage. Maybe I've really been fearful of the responsibility it carried. I cannot let the people I am responsible for be exposed just because I'm want to avoid conflict. I will "step up" (as Tabitha says) and be the man.

Prayer:
Lord, help me to walk humbly and confidently in the assignment you've given to me.
