Questions to think through and pray through with your small group and family
Taken from the back of The Story book “Discussion Questions”

  1. Why was David chosen to be the next king of Israel?
  2. What obstacles did David face to become the king he was anointed to be?
  3. How was David able to face a giant when so many others gave way to fear?
  4. Why did David spare Saul when he had the chance to be free of Saul’s attempts to kill him? What would you have done?
  5. David had a single goal (that the God of Israel would be glorified) because he had a single love (the God of Israel). What can you do to cultivate a heart like David’s?
