Ask: Did you know that David was a shepherd?
Discuss: David spent a lot of time taking care of his father's sheep and doing anything else that was asked of him by his dad. Once his dad sent him to check on his brothers and take them some food. His brothers had really cool jobs as warriors in Saul's army and they didn't think David was as strong or as much of a warrior as they were.
Do: Check out this song from Veggie Tales, it reminds us how David knew he all he needed was faith.
And don't forget to spend some time this week reviewing the Point and verse
Bonus: David's Story: Our Life
Ask: Did you know that we can think just like David when we face opposition? Do you know why?
Do: Read Philippians 4:13
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:13 NLT
Discuss: Paul writes to the church in Philippi, that he has faced a lot of opposition. He sometimes didn't have enough to live on and often faced opposition from within and especially outside the early church. But Paul tells us why tells us why he wasn't defeated. He had faith in Jesus and he knew that no matter what, whatever he did in faithful service to God, his strength would come from Jesus. This applies to Christ Followers today, and just like David, when we face opposition, as long as we are working with a faithful heart, we have the strength of Christ behind and for us.
