This Week in Sunday School - God’s Role for Me - 1 Samuel 15: 34-16:13

FOCUS: This week we look at what it means when God chooses us, not so much the consequences of our choices as we did last week. Samuel is chosen to anoint the future King as Saul has failed to follow God's commandments. Jesse is chosen to provide a son to be the next King. David's brothers are chosen to set aside traditions and support their youngest brother as he is anointed as a most unlikely King, based on social norms of the day. God looks at the heart, not the outer appearance when making his choices. David has a choice too, to respond to that call. Just as we too must respond to the call of God to be a leader or a follower.

What special thing are we called to do or be? When or how might the call change as we grow and change?

Prayer: Anointing God, help us to listen for your call, to respond in faith, and to live out that call to the best of our ability.  Amen


See you in church!
