Day Six

David's Charge to Solomon

Before getting started, make sure you've watched [su_lightbox src=""]Captain Mike's introduction video[/su_lightbox].

1 Kings 2:1-4
What are the three main things that David charged Solomon to do?

What does it mean to “be strong and show yourself a man”?

What does it mean to follow God’s commands and be obedient to him? Where can we find these commands?

Do you think you can be obedient to God and follow his commands on your own, by your own strength?

Read [su_tooltip style="bootstrap" position="top" shadow="no" rounded="no" size="default" title="John 14:15-17" content="15 'If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you." behavior="click" close="yes" class=""]John 14:15-17[/su_tooltip]. Who has God given to help us live the way he wants us to?

Can you think of, or imagine a time, when you needed strength and courage to do what God wanted you to?

Be strong, and show yourself a man

1 Kings 2:2b

How can you grow into the type of man that David told Solomon to be?

How might you be strong and courageous in your life now and in the future?

Keep reading! The book of Mark is a great place to start. If you need to, ask an adult to help read along.
