What better way to teach children about godliness than through the story of David's early life! This six-lesson series includes Israel's demand for a king, Saul's disobedience, God's choice of David to be king, David's victory over Goliath, Saul's attempts to kill David and David's sparing of Saul's life. Children are challenged to give God first place in their lives, seek His strength when they're tempted to disobey, keep their hearts right with Him, count on Him to give them courage, stop the sin of jealousy and do good even to those who mistreat them. Every child needs to learn these life-changing truths.
