The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, January 30. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
David’s Heart for God
Read: 1 Samuel 16-17
Ask your child:
- Why did God select David to be Israel’s next king? David was a man after God’s own heart.
- How did David defend God’s honor? David fought Goliath, who mocked Israel and its God.
Emphasize this principle: God does amazing things with hearts that belong to him. Therefore, we should live for His glory.
- Examine your heart and learn what pleases the Lord.
- Glorify God with your thoughts and actions.
Praise: “Only a Boy Named David”
Prepare for next week: 2 Samuel 1:1-2:4a; 7
Memorize for Jan 9-Feb 6: “…let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25*
