God Chooses David (CSSA Primary Stage 2 Lesson 20)

In this week’s Sunday School lesson, we see how Samuel is given direction by God on how to anoint the next king of Israel. We are introduced to David hard at work caring for his father’s animals. Humble and unassuming David resembles Saul’s earlier self in so many ways – and yet truly in God’s words to Samuel we see the big difference – in his heart David truly wanted to be one with God.

Practical Challenge

Thanks to Kate B. for sharing these practical challenges.

Each week we hope to share a practical challenge that can be incorporated into the lesson or as homework.

Lesson 20 – Practical Challenge

God looks on our heart!  Let’s focus not on our appearances but on our character so that we are a boy/girl who wants to act like God.

Craft Ideas

In case you’ve forgotten, two dedicated Sunday School teachers have very useful Pinterest pages that link directly to the CSSA program. Each week we will share direct links to the Pinterest boards so you can quickly and easily get quality ideas if needed.
