The Crown Week 8: Day 2
Read: 1 Samuel 18:17-19:10
What is Saul's motivation for offering his daughter in marriage to David?
How does David react to
- His military success?
- The offer of becoming the king's son-in-law?
This passage contrasts two reactions to God's blessing: Saul's violent jealousy; and David's humility and obedience.
Read Mark 9:33-35
What opportunities might you have to claim positions of power and success? What would it look like to instead follow Jesus's example and humbly take the role of a servant in that situation?
Thank God for the way he works out his justice and protects and exalts the humble.
