Want to get a little deeper into the study? Below are some questions and thoughts to consider based on the sermon message. Feel free to work through them on your own, as a family or in your small group. (Discussion questions for elementary-age kids can be found below.) If you have questions, please contact us.
What did David do wrong? Why was he conscience-stricken?
David neglected Joab’s advice. How do you usually respond to advice? What measures do you take to determine how you will respond?
What is a threshing floor? What is significant about the location of this threshing floor? Read 1 Chronicles 22:1 (note this same event is recorded in 1 Chronicles 21).
Why is David offering a sacrifice for the Israelites? Is this normal for a king or is David taking on a different role?
YOUR CALL TO ACTION:
