PICTURE: South Bend Symphony. Our music teacher got a grant for the 4th and 5th grade students to attend the symphony. We all got dressed up and attended an amazing production designed for students.
READING: 1 Samuel 15-16. Disobedience honks God off! Saul knew what he was to do, but took his own approach rather than follow God's direction. It didn't' work out to Saul's favor - "And the LORD was grieved that he had made Saul king over Israel." 1 Sam 15:35
So, God sends Samuel to find a new king. As Samuel is meeting people, God reminds him "The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance but the LORD looks at the heart." 1 Sam 16:7b. God chose David and Samuel anointed him.
