Sailing the Sixty-Six: God Sees the Heart
First watch this lesson video:
Here are questions and an activity to help you talk about the lesson with your kids.
1. Who did God choose to be king after Saul? (David)
2. Why was everyone surprised at who God picked? (Because on the outside, David was young and small. His brothers looked much more “kingly” than David did.)
3. How did God choose David? Was David the tallest and strongest?(No. God explained that while people look at the outer appearance, God looks at the heart. God chose David because of what He saw in David’s heart.)
4. What did God see in David’s heart? (A person who loved God with his whole heart.)
5. Do you remember the name of the book in the Bible that contains David’s songs and poems to God? (Psalms)
6. Have everyone draw a heart on a piece of paper. Inside the heart write down this week’s memory verse from Psalm 18:1. Then put the hearts around the house in places you’ll see them to help you remember to express your love to God like David did – with your whole heart.
“I love you, O Lord, my strength.” – Psalm 18:1
Seek God together
Take some time to express your love to God. You can take turns telling God how much you love Him. Then end with this closing prayer:
“Lord Jesus, you came to save us from sin. But when many people looked at you, they didn’t believe that you could be the Messiah. Even when you were dying on the cross, they couldn’t see. But three days later, when you rose from the dead, we knew. You are the true and forever king who came to save the world. You are our King. Help us to love you and praise you like David did — with our whole hearts. We love you, O Lord, our strength!”
Sing your love to God with this song:
