Day 14: David is Anoinnted
BREATHE: Calm your head, heart, and hands as you slowly breathe in . . . and out.
READ: 1 Samuel 16:1-13
WONDER: What do you think it was about David that made the Lord choose him— even though he was the youngest of his brothers? Wonder what it means that God doesn’t see us the way people do.
PRAY: The Jesse in this story is where we get the name “Jesse Tree.” Because Jesus is a descendant of David and David was Jesse’s son, Jesus is like a new tree growing from the stump of Jesse’s family tree. Thank God for Jesse and for his son, David. Thank him for sending Jesus through the family of David.
