Week Four, January 23-29

David was the youngest of Jesse’s eight sons. By all accounts, he didn’t look like a king. Even Samuel would have chosen one of Jesse’s other sons over David. But God had other plans. This week, we will read about David’s defeat of Goliath which puts him on the path to becoming Israel’s next king. As you read, think about where David’s courage came from to face a foe that the Israelite army was scared to face. David knew where his strength came from. Where are you finding your strength to face your daily battles?

1 Samuel 17:1–6
