Preparing for October 22

22 October, Pentecost 20

10-22-2017 Go Look

Story: 1 Samuel 16:1-13 (p. 57, Pew Bible)

Psalm 51:10-14 (p. 510, Pew Bible)

Message: The Alternative Way of Love

Focus: Go Look

Reflection: Read this week’s scripture. Samuel is now the older wiser one, yet still he cannot see what God sees. Looking only at the visible he would have gone with the tall, the handsome, the brave. He would have overlooked the youngest boy, David. Thank God that first impressions are not the only impressions; God does not rely on the visible. God knows the heart is what matters. Name in your heart the hidden things that God knows.
