The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, October 28. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
God Sees David’s Heart
Passage: 1 Samuel 16
Principle: God sees the hearts of all men.
Praise: “Undivided Heart”
Prompt: Ask your child these questions:
- How was David chosen as king of Israel?
- How is God’s view of man different from ours?
Practice: Help your child apply these truths in the following ways:
- By examining his heart and learning what pleases the Lord.
- By not judging others based on their outward appearance.
This Week: As a family, read selected portions of 1 Samuel 16.
Next Week: 1 Samuel 17
Memory Verse: 1 Samuel 16:7
“But the LORD said to Samuel, ‘Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.’”
