This is the fifth post in our Bible study series called Loving God With All Your Heart: Portraits of Love. You can find the other posts in the series here:
a man after God’s own heart. (I Samuel 13:14; Acts 13:22)
This author of so many Psalms is the subject of our next Portrait of Love.
After all, I think we’d be wise to explore the example of a man who goes down in history as one with a heart like God’s.
How exactly did he demonstrate his love for God? The Bible has something to say about this. Let’s consider it together, shall we?
What you’ll need: your Bible, a pen or pencil, Portrait of Love: David printable
Click here for a brief historical background and overview of David’s life.
A few notes before you begin:
- Space out your reading through the week, answering the questions as you encounter them in the text.
- Don’t rush through your reading! Focus on quality over quantity. Consider David as a real person with real emotions and real problems. Think about what his experience was like. His life is recorded on the pages of God’s Word as an example for you! What can you learn from him?
- Begin and end your time in God’s Word with prayer. There is no better Teacher than the Holy Spirit, and He can open your eyes to God’s truth and help you apply it.
- The printable worksheet provided is only a guide. You will likely need to continue some of your answers on the back of the page. Feel free to add to the outline or omit from it. The goal is simply for you to ponder and apply the Scriptures.
- As you read, keep our main question in mind: What can I learn about loving God with all my heart, soul, and strength?
