1 Samuel 16:1-13
When have you forgotten to listen to God, and done your own thing instead?
What qualities do you think are most important in leaders (that you could cultivate in yourself)?
Who are those on the margins, who we don’t regularly notice or consider for certain roles?
How does the description of the desert resonate, or not, with your experience of wilderness places?
How have you tested God? What were (are!) your complaints?
In what ways has God asked you, through prayer, to do something nonsensical, to get your desired outcome?
