Gigantic Problems Call For a Giant God!
We face many Giants in life, like Loneliness, Fear, and Shame. But our God is greater than them all. As the life of David shows us, when we put our Faith, Hope, and Love into God, He will give us the power to defeat any giant.
Giants Lessons Overview:

Scripture: 1 Samuel 16:1-13, David Anointed

Scripture: 1 Samuel 16:14-23, David in Saul's Service

Scripture: 1 Samuel 17:32-49, The Giant Goliath

Scripture: 1 Samuel 20:16-42, David and Jonathan

Memory Verse: “Be strong, all you who put your hope in the Lord. Never give up.” Psalm 31:24 (NIRV)
Scripture: 1 Samuel 24:1-19, David Spares Saul's Life
King Saul was so filled with anger that he chased after David and tried to kill him. When Saul went into a cave where David and his men were hiding, David did not repay anger with anger but showed Saul mercy. David put his hope in God to take care of everything.
Objective: Little ones will say, “I will talk to God when I am angry.”
Scripture: 1 Samuel 25:4-24 & 25:35-38, Abigail and Nabal
When Nabal mistreated David's soldiers, David held anger and unforgiveness in his heart. Only after Nabal's wife Abigail came to David, his heart softened and he made peace.
Objective: Little ones will say, “I will forgive others.”
Scripture: 2 Samuel 6:12-22, David Dances
When the Ark of the Covenant returned to Jerusalem, King David was so excited he danced with joy before the Lord. His wife, Michal, told David that he should be ashamed of himself for such behavior, but David knew there was nothing wrong with praising and worshiping God.

Scripture: 2 Samuel 9:1-13, David and Mephibosheth

David gave into temptation, a decision that led to many evil deeds. When we let temptation take control, we invite all kinds of terrible things to happen. If David, a man after God’s own heart can be tempted, we certainly must be on our guard against the giant of temptation.
Objective: Little ones will say “I can pray when I am tempted.”
Scripture: 2 Samuel 12:13-14, David Repents

Scripture: 1 Kings 2:1-12, David Says Goodbye
