This is it! Our final week in the book of 2 Samuel! This week we will read chapters 21-24 and be finished on Thursday.
This Tuesday, May 1st – I will begin the new series titled “Habit Tracking Tuesdays” – so I hope you will join me for this series!
Then on June 11th, we will begin our summer Bible Study – reading one chapter a day – through the first 50 chapters of the book of Psalms. So come spend your summer in the book of Psalms with me. It’s the perfect light and refreshing summer read!
We also have a Good Morning Guys
Psalms 1-50 Journal
for your sons ages 10 and up.
Both journals have identical interiors. 😉
More details and resources for this study will be posted on the blog later in May.
Now let’s get back to this week’s study and finish strong!!!

This week’s Reflection & Discussion Questions
(Leaders: Copy and paste these into your groups. If you do not have a group, use these for a personal time of reflection.)
After a famine in the land went on and on and on, David finally sought God. CS Lewis said: “God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”
God uses difficulties and trials to turn our hearts toward him. What pain or trial has God used in your life to get your attention and how have you sought and found God in the midst of your difficulty?
David lists all the things that God is to him. He gives him title after title, as he praises God.
What is God to you? Give God praise by listing some of the titles you have for God below.
As David reflects on his life, though it was far from perfect, he remembers how blessed he was. God was always with him and never forsook him. Like a glorious sunrise, after a dark night, were the blessings of God in his life.
Pause for a moment and consider the most beautiful sunrise you have ever seen. Where were you? Now compare that to the blessings you have received in your life despite the imperfections. How are God’s blessings like a sunrise in your life?
David sinned by numbering his people and attempting to take credit and glory, for the growth of his kingdom. God punished David. David desired to be back in fellowship with God and so he built an altar. Araunah offered to give David what he needed for his sacrifice but David knew that his sacrifice must cost him something if it was going to please God.
Following God comes with a cost. Is there something you need to give up so you can live a more obedient life to God? What has following God cost you? Remember what we gain far outweighs any sacrifice we could ever give.
