What Do You Think?
Why might some people have been surprised that David would do what he did in 2 Samuel 9 for one of Saul’s descendants?
Find a Scripture
Use your scripture helps to find a scripture verse that teaches us to act as David did in 2 Samuel 9. Write the scripture in your notebook and explain why you chose it. A good way to find a scripture is to look in the Topical Guide under a word that describes David’s actions. You may find one of those words in the footnotes. Write the reference in the margin of 2 Samuel 9 in your Bible.
