(Lesson Three)



(the entire, 6-week series)


This is Lesson Three in a
six week series on Judges .This story is overlooked a lot! It teaches us how Gideon quickly became the most hated person in town, and how the same actions that made him unpopular eventually earned him the devotion of thousands of soldiers.​

The Verses
Judges 6, Joshua 1:7-9, Matthew 5:11-12​

The Gist
When Gideon destroyed his town���s idols, everyone wanted him dead. But soon after this, thousands of soldiers were ready and willing to follow him into battle​​.

The Point
Taking a stand is never popular, but true leaders are those who have the courage to stand up for what is right.
