The Crown Week 12: Day 1
Read: 2 Samuel 11:1-13
Read 1 Samuel 8:19-20. What did the Israelites expect their king to do? How does this contrast with David’s actions in 2 Samuel 11?
How does David try to deceive Uriah? How does this compare with the way Saul treated David in 1 Samuel?
The author emphasises that Uriah is a Hittite, rather than an Israelite. How are Uriah and David’s actions contrasted?
What responsibilities do you hold in different areas of your life? What does it look like to faithfully step up to these responsibilities? How are you going at doing this?
· Give thanks that in Jesus we have a perfect king who we can trust and follow
· Pray for courage, wisdom and perseverance in living out the roles and responsibilities God has given you
