1 Samuel 16:1-13
Why was Samuel sent to Bethlehem?

What did Samuel say when he saw David’s oldest and strongest brother, Eliab? Why did he say this?

What was God’s response? What does God value in a leader more than appearance?

Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.

1 Samuel 16:7

In [su_tooltip style="bootstrap" position="top" shadow="no" rounded="no" size="default" title="Acts 13:22" content="And when he had removed him, he raised up David to be their king, of whom he testified and said, ‘I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.’" behavior="click" close="yes" class=""]Acts 13:22[/su_tooltip], God says He chose David because David was “a man after my own heart.” What does it look like to be a man after God’s own heart? (Look at the end of verse 22)

Are there areas in your life that are “after God’s own heart”? What about areas that are under construction?

What can you do to align your heart with God’s plan for your life?
