First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read 1 Samuel 16.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — God prompts Samuel to anoint young David, the most unlikely candidate, as the next King of Israel.
- Doctrinal — God looks at the heart when selecting leaders, not how they appear to people (see verse 7).
- Inspirational — God? Would you speak to our current leaders about who are the future leaders of church plants and sites (see verse 1)? And what’s up with God saying, “It’s time to stop sitting around and mourning Saul’s failures as a leader. I’ve moved on.”
