1 Week of November 6, 2011 Lessons for the Leader God has plans for everyone, and you are no exception. Seek an intimate relationship with God, and He will reveal His plans for your life in His time. Read 1 Samuel 16:1-3. God spoke to Samuel, giving Samuel a specific and important job to do. What was Samuel's response? Fear. Samuel feared the retaliation of a man a powerful king. How often is fear your reaction instead of obedience to God? Is God not more powerful than any man? Absolutely He is, and obedience is one way we worship our Almighty God and King. God knew King Saul watched every move His prophet, Samuel, made. Anointing another man as king would threaten King Saul's reign. God had a diversion plan for Samuel. Read 1 Samuel 16:4-5. How did the elders of Bethlehem react when they saw Samuel? They trembled in fear! As a prophet, Samuel sometimes came not in peace, but in judgment. This time Samuel came in peace with the intention of anointing a new king; however, he gave no reason for his visit other than the sacrifice God had commanded. Samuel had anointed Saul years before in a similar manner, in obedience to God's command. Samuel trusted God's plan for His people, and he did what God said. Samuel obeyed God. Read 1 Samuel 16:6-13. God knew who loved Him and whom He chose to be king. Throughout the entire selection process, Samuel conversed with God. Are you in constant conversation with God? How can you teach children to talk with God anytime, anywhere, about anything? How can you use Samuel's story to shift your focus to worshiping (and obeying) God ultimately developing a personal relationship with your heavenly Father? What do these symbols mean? 1a Application Activities Format: Follow the numbers with arrows for a 30-minute, large group plus 20-minute Application Activities format. 1 Large Group Only Format: Follow all the numbers for a 45- to 60-minute large group only format.

There is a new word to learn from this chapter. The word is anoint. Anoint means 'to pour oil or perfume on someone to show he is special.' We'll learn how God sent a man to anoint a shepherd boy as king." 9aTell the Bible Story (7 minutes) Open your Bible to 1 Samuel and tell the story. Samuel Anointed David Based on 1 Samuel 16:1-13 God rejected, or said no to Saul as king over Israel. This meant that members of Saul's family would not become king after him. Samuel was very sad because of this. God told Samuel to fill his horn with oil. God sent Samuel to Bethlehem. Samuel was to go to the house of a man named Jesse to anoint one of Jesse's sons as a new king. Samuel asked God how he could go and do this because King Saul might hurt him. God told Samuel to take a cow to offer as a sacrifice and invite Jesse and his sons to come. A sacrifice was "an offering given to God." Page 2 of 16

3 Samuel did what God told him to do and traveled to Bethlehem. When Samuel arrived in Bethlehem, the people wanted to know why he was there. Samuel told the people he had come in peace and invited the people to the sacrifice. Jesse and his sons came to the sacrifice. When the men arrived, Samuel saw Eliab (ih LIGH ab). Samuel thought this was the son God wanted as king. God told Samuel not to just look at the outside appearance or looks of the man. God said Eliab was not the new king. Jesse presented seven of his sons to Samuel. None of these sons were the one God had chosen. Samuel asked Jesse if he had any other sons. Jesse told Samuel his youngest son worked in the fields watching sheep. Samuel said to get him. Everyone waited for David to arrive. God told Samuel to anoint David as the new king. So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed David to one day be the new king. God guided David from that day forward. 10aReview the Bible Story (3 minutes) Print "Teaching Picture 10 David Anointed" (CD). Display the teaching picture. Invite children to tell about the picture. Ask: "What did Samuel do?" Listen to responses. Recap any story information not told. Comment: "Samuel did what God told him to do. Samuel anointed David as king.
