Week of June 26
This Week’s Reading Assignment

S.O.A.K. any verse of your choosing.
The group discussion thread is under Bible Study » 2 Samuel.

Reading: 2 Samuel 16
Verse of the Day: 2 Samuel 16:12
Optional GMG Discussion/ Personal Reflection Question: Rather than taking the situation into his own hands, David was willing to be at God’s mercy. He trusted that if he did was right in the moment, God would take care of his future.

Has someone treated you unfairly or unkindly? Perhaps you are tempted to retaliate or treat them poorly in return. What do you think God wants you to do? Could you give this person mercy and trust that God will take care of you rather than taking the matter into your own hands?

Reading: 2 Samuel 17
Verse of the Day: 2 Samuel 17:29
Optional GMG Discussion/ Personal Reflection Question: God provided friends for David in the wilderness. They were sent by God to comfort him during his affliction and to stand by him, so he was not alone.

Do you have a friend who has stood by you through a trial? That friend was a gift from God. Be sure to thank her for being there for you.

Who do you know who is going through a trial right now that you can stand by and comfort? Take the time to reach out to that friend today through a simple text, email, phone call, hug, cup of coffee or card in the mail.

Reading: 2 Samuel 18
Verse of the Day: 2 Samuel 18:28
Optional GMG Discussion/ Personal Reflection Question: Absalom was deceived in his rebellion. He had a plan to take over David’s kingdom but his life was cut short. Once again, God delivered David. Only this time, the delivery was from the hand of his own son and we see a broken hearted David crying, “my son, my son, my son.”

Have you been betrayed by a loved one? Though it is heartbreaking to walk through betrayal, what is worse is never seeing the person come out of their rebellion. Have you lost someone you love? Though your heart may be broken, God is for you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Praise God today for his faithfulness to you.

Reading: 2 Samuel 19
Verse of the Day: 2 Samuel 19:27
Optional GMG Discussion/ Personal Reflection Question: Mephibosheth was completely devoted to King David. He was so devoted that he did not care about his own wants or desires. He watched and waited for his return. He looked for the King. He longed for the King and he loved the King.

How are you like Mephibosheth? Are you watching and waiting for the return of Christ? Do you look for, long for and love the King of Kings? How can you live more fully focused on God rather than your own wants and desires?

Reading: 2 Samuel 20
Verse of the Day: 2 Samuel 20:17
Optional GMG Discussion/ Personal Reflection Question: A wise woman came out of nowhere and challenged the thinking of the military leader, Joab. She cried, “listen!” and he listened. What great courage this wise woman must have had to show up in this way – uninvited.

Is there someone in your life, headed for a crisis, whom you need to challenge in their thinking? We must tread lightly and prayerfully, as we confront others but we must also not give into fear. There is a time to be silent and a time to speak up. Pray and ask the Lord to show what time it is.
