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.
Explain the divide in the succession to replace David as king. Who is on each side? Share an experience when you were involved in a situation that consisted of people on differing sides. How did you feel in the midst of this circumstance?
How did David respond to this division? How would you describe David’s temperament throughout our study of 1&2 Samuel?
What attribute of David’s life would you like to mimic in your own life?
How did God work in David’s life through the troubles he had? How has God worked in your life through difficult circumstances?
“When we put our faith in the Almighty God, God does not disappoint.” Where in your life do you need to expand your faith in God?
