Optional: Read 2 Samuel 16 – 18:18

Read: 2 Samuel 16:1-4

Explore:

David has been run out of the kingdom by his own son and has no where to go. But God provides for David and his men through Ziba, the steward of Saul’s grandson.

Why did Mephibosheth stay in Jerusalem? What does this show about his desires?

Why do you think Ziba helped David even when his master wouldn’t?

Apply:

Read Proverbs 19:6-7

It’s easy to find a friend when life is going well or you have something to offer them. It can be a lot harder to find someone when you need help.

What do you hope your relationships will look like? What do you hope to contribute?

Is there someone you know that could use a friend today?

Pray:

Thank God for providing people to help us when we need it

Ask for help in pointing others to Jesus and thank God when you are encouraged in this way

Pray that you would see your relationships as an opportunity to give and sacrifice for the benefit of others
