(Read Deuteronomy 17:16)

Deuteronomy lists what should be true of a king. What does 17:16 say about amassing horses? Why is that a problem to do so? (Psalm 20:7) Wherein is our strength? One commentator suggests that a king riding in on a war horse would give the impression of ruling through might, but the donkey or mule as the king’s steed, shows a peaceful rule. By riding in on a donkey, Jesus symbolically showed that He is King, but that His Kingdom was a spiritual, peaceful kingdom. Does that mean that Jesus was not in charge? What aspect of riding a donkey showed that He is in control . Is He in control of you today? Give Him your heart.

(Read 1 Kings 1:28-40)

Adonijah was another of David’s princely sons. In 1 Kings 1:5 what did he do when David was very old? Is it appropriate to declare yourself as the leader? Why or why not? Who supported him? Who did not? (vs. 7-8). Who warned Bathsheba, mother of Solomon? Why should she have been worried? Was it David’s intention to place Adonijah on the throne? In 1 Kings 1:28-40 David is old and dying. How did he and his trusted advisors insure the succession to the throne? (vs. 33,38). What does it mean to you that God has a plan about leadership and it does not just happen by hook or by crook? Today, pray for those in leadership that they will follow God.

(Read 2 Samuel 16:2)

Leadership is often a lonely, difficult role. Leading up to this story, because of David’s moral failure, he is judged. (Read 2 Samuel 12:9-12). What does one of David’s princely sons do to his half sister? (Read 2 Samuel 13:10-14). What does another princely son of David, Absalom do to Amnon? This divides David from Absalom. Absalom flees the palace and is in exile. In ch. 15, Absalom props himself up as the king in an attempted palace coup. Read 15:13-14. Who comes to his aid? (16:1-2) Why did Zeba saddle up these beasts? Who was the rightful leader? Today consider how you are honoring those who are leaders.
