Sermon Discussion Questions For Home Church and others

1 Samuel 16:1-13, “Anointed”

  1. Opening: Share about your past jobs. Favourite? Worst? Strangest?
  2. For many of us, this story is pretty familiar. As we read it again today, what, if anything, struck you or surprised you?
  3. “People look at the outward appearance” (v.7a). How have you seen this tendency to be true in your own life and in society? How has it hurt you and/or helped you?
  4. “The LORD looks at the heart” (v.7b). What does this mean? Do you hear this as good or bad news?
  5. “People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” How might this statement be applied to our Church? What might God be inviting us to release or to focus on?
