2 Samuel Application
1) What have you learned about sin and its consequences? Did you think that if God forgave you, you would never reap sin's harvest? What do you think now?
2) In light of all you have learned, why do you think God referred to David as a man after His own heart (1 Samuel 13:14; Acts 13:22)? Give this some serious thought. Then think about what such a statement about David, made after his death, would mean to you. If you wanted to be a man, a woman, a teen, a child after God's own heart, what do you think it would require on your part?
3) Review the "Lessons for Life" you marked in the margin. What did you see that you can make a matter of prayer? Did you learn anything about inquiring or sitting before the Lord? Did you learn anything from marking "before the Lord"?
