Jesse Tree: Day 13

December 11

Scripture:  1 Samuel 16:1-13

Reading:  God has a plan for you. Even when we are young, God sees into our hearts and knows what kind of people we are and what kind of people we will be.

Most of the grown-ups who saw David thought he was just a kid who tended the sheep, but while David was still a child God chose him to be a king. God’s servant Samuel poured oil on David’s head and anointed him as the future king of Israel.

God has a plan for each of us. Not many of us will be rulers, but each of us can serve God in important ways. It’s important to listen for God’s call and to find ways to honor God in our lives.

Talk About:  How can you honor God in your life?

Prayer:  God of wisdom, guide us to serve you.
