Commentary:  The continuing story of Gideon demonstrates that with God all things are possible.  We also see that all can fall to temptation, even Godly leaders.  It is important to remember God in the victories in life, for they are possible because of Him.  It is also important to listen to God’s direction and not make rash promises, as Jephthah did.

Focus Verses:  8:23-27  Did Gideon’s actions match his words?  How did they differ?  Have you ever acted like Gideon?  What can you do to rectify it?
