Psalms: 119:1-24


1 Samuel: By this time Samuel had managed to inch his way up to the top of King Saul’s “most wanted” list. Samuel goes to Bethlehem to anoint whom the LORD had chosen as the next king of Israel. That king was to come from Jesse’s house. Jesse had 8 sons, and wouldn’t you know it, it was the last son, the youngest whom God had chosen: David. David was probably in his mid-teens now. He was a shepherd boy who took his job seriously. It turns out that about 1,000 years later Jesus would identify Himself as “the Good Shepherd.”

Gospel: Luke 24:12-35

New Testament: Acts 10:1-16

Old Testament: 1 Samuel 16:1-13
