The teeny, weenie...true king (day 20)
The story of David being chosen as King of Israel is on page 116 of the Jesus Storybook Bible. This account is found in 1 Samuel 16 The emphasis is really on God's words in 1 Samuel 16 :7 when he says "man looks at the outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart." We found some bananas and agreed they didn't look too yummy to eat from the outside. But when we peeled them the story changed. We tried to talk about the type of heart that would be pleasing to the Lord. Kiwi's and watermelon would be other great examples of things that look very different on the inside. We also played duck duck goose but instead said no no yes to pretend we were going through Jesse's sons picking a king.
the point? the Lord looks at the heart
