Week of June 12
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 6
Verse of the Day: 2 Samuel 6:16
Optional GMG Discussion/ Personal Reflection Question: David danced before the Lord. This showed David’s genuine emotion and heartfelt worship of God. He was not ashamed to publicly exalt God.

When you worship, do you show emotion or do you repress it in fear of what others might think or say about you? We don’t think much of a football player dancing when he makes a touchdown or raising our hands in celebration when our child makes a goal. Do you struggle to express yourself in genuine worship or do you feel free to lift your voice and hands in praise?

Reading: 2 Samuel 7
Verse of the Day: 2 Samuel 7:22
Optional GMG Discussion/ Personal Reflection Question: David did not see himself as great but rather he saw God as great. More than 10 times in this passage, David calls himself a servant. David had a heart of humility and he longed to do more for God.

Sometimes, due to our own selfishness, we can be tempted to do as little as possible for God. David had a heart that was willing to go above and beyond because he saw God’s greatness. Sit and ponder for a moment on the greatness of God. List 5 ways that God is great and one way that you can show God a humble servant’s heart.

Reading: 2 Samuel 8
Verse of the Day: 2 Samuel 8:14
Optional GMG Discussion/ Personal Reflection Question: David is generally known as the greatest King of Israel because of the victories and prosperity that Israel experienced, during David’s reign. God wanted to reign in the life of Saul but Saul rejected God. Because David had a heart after God, God was able to use him and bless his people through him.

Can you recall a time in your life when you were like Saul and you resisted the Lord? Can you now see the blessings you missed out on? How can you fully surrender to God now, so that he is able to more fully use you to be a blessing to others around you?

Reading: 2 Samuel 9
Verse of the Day: 2 Samuel 9:11
Optional GMG Discussion/ Personal Reflection Question: The picture of David inviting Mephibosheth to dine at his table, is a beautiful picture of grace. Mephibosheth was in hiding, fearful that he’d be put to death because he was a descendant of Saul. Instead, he was blessed.

David gives us a pattern of serving others in this passage. Who can you seek out to bless? Is there someone undeserving, who is weak, poor, and hidden, who you can show the kindness of God to? Follow David’s example. Be a blessing to someone who is undeserving today.

Reading: 2 Samuel 10
Verse of the Day: 2 Samuel 10:12
Optional GMG Discussion/ Personal Reflection Question: Joab called on his people to have strength and courage as they went into battle. He wisely trusted in God for the outcome, while simultaneously working hard for the victory.

Courage is a choice. Is there a battle you are fighting, that requires courage and strength? This is your call to courage. May the Lord fight your battle, as you step up courageously and face whatever the Lord is calling you to.
