Study 20 From the Book of 1 Samuel is: 1 Samuel 25 and 26
1. Nabal was rich and satisfied; but what did he lack? What, in contrast, were the outstanding features of Abigail’s character? Can you think of situations where you could act as she did?
2. Chapter 26. What basic convictions motivated David’s actions? How does his faith in God’s purpose for him stand out? In particular, what principle emerges from 25:39 and 26:10, 23?
Note. 26:19, 20. To be driven out of the promised land (cf. 27:1) is to be driven out not from the dominion of the Lord (see many psalms), but certainly from His special covenanted presence to lands where other gods are worshiped.
