Welcome back to Week 2 in the Book of 1 Samuel!
If you are looking for guidance in the color coding and daily insight into the reading – please visit me on Instagram and visit the hashtag #GoodMorningGirls – there are lots of women posting their pictures of their color coded Bibles and their reflections on our reading. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to do this and not all of our Bibles will look alike.
Here’s what some of them look like:
We are also discussing our reading daily on the GMG Facebook page. If you haven’t checked that out yet – do that this week! The discussion there is so rich and encouraging!
If you are new here – jump in right where we are and catch up on the weekends. All are welcome to join anytime – there are no enrollments or sign-ups!
Here’s the Printable Bible Bookmark – check off your reading each day!
Here are this week’s Reflection & Discussion Questions
We live in a culture that tends to treat God casually rather than holy. At times, we lean more towards grace than obedience or towards our feelings rather than letting God’s Word have the final say.
How have you seen this around you? How can we live differently?
Israel had strayed from serving God and needed a change of heart.
Are there any areas where your heart has secretly gone astray? How can you redirect your heart today?
Israel wanted a king so they could be like the other nations. When we take our eyes off of God’s Word, we too can be influenced by the world’s trends.
In what ways have you seen the church tempted to follow the world’s ways over God’s?
God chose someone that the world would have overlooked to become the king of Israel.
How does this encourage you to see that God does not choose those he uses based on status, wealth or background?
The rejection of the Lord made no sense. Why would anyone reject the one who had saved them?
Sometimes we act like the Israelites and we try to solve our problems on our own. Tell of a time when you have struggled with this.
Special Note: For those who have done previous studies with GMG, we are discontinuing the Reflection Question Graphics due to the length of the question not fitting on a graphic. Going forward, they will be printed in Monday’s Resource post in this format. Please copy and paste them in your emails or Facebook groups. Thank you!

The Verses of the Day:
I encourage you to choose which verse you’d like to memorize or meditate on. The printable below includes all 5 verses of the day — for the entire week! Print and cut them out and put them in the bathroom, kitchen, beside your bed and computer and use them for meditation throughout the week.
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. – Joshua 1:8
