1 Samuel 16:1-13 - Sunday Scripture Reflection

Please join us in the church library on Sunday, March 19, 2023, at 9:00 a.m. for our weekly Scripture Reflection Series.

On this Fourth Sunday in Lent we hear the story of the prophet Samuel, sent on a mission by God to identify and anoint the one who would someday serve as the leader of the Jewish people. The story presents the thoughts and actions of Samuel, but the focus of the story centers on human understanding of those called to positions of leadership. What makes a person a good leader and why is it that God often seems to have a different criteria than we do? As we reflect on our own opportunities for service to God's mission in the world, we will consider the human side of saying "Yes" to God and why we might often feel unworthy to serve.

Our Scripture passage is found in the First Book of Samuel. You may find the Scripture lesson by selecting the following link: (1 Samuel 16:1-13).

For continuing study, reflect on these questions (found in the study guide below):

  • Questions for reflection will be posted after the weekly Scripture Reflection meeting.
