1. How is true obedience illustrated in Samuel's behavior? What can you learn from his example?
2. What great truth was brought home to Samuel at Bethlehem? Consider how this truth is emphasized in Jesus's teaching. See Mt. 6:1; 7:15, etc. Cf. Rom. 2:28, 29.
3. Here men twice sent to fetch David; why? When he comes into sight, what do we learn about him? Make a list of his characteristics. What was the chief evidence that God had chosen him and rejected Saul? Cf. 2 Cor. 1:22.
Note. Verses 21, 22. David became an 'Armour-bearer---possibly a military title. The phrase 'remain in my service' does not imply continued physical presence. If it did, 17:55, 56 would be unintelligible.
