Q4: Read 1 Samuel 13:13-14.  What do these verses reveal about what it is to be a person after God’s own heart?

Q5: Pastor David mentioned 5 things that David was “good at”.  Which one do you connect with most?  Why?  Which characteristic would you most like to see developed in your life?  Why?

Q6: 1 Kings 15:5 indicates that David’s sin was not his identity nor was his failure his legacy.  How does this truth encourage you in your journey with Jesus?
