    WOMEN OF FAITH

    THE BLESSEDNESS OF BOLDNESS


    WEEK 4

    Abigail


    INTRODUCTION

    The truths of Scripture are essential and life giving to those who believe in the power of God and His Son, the Savior, Jesus Christ. Scripture is full of examples of Women Of Faith who boldly took action and obeyed God to do things that furthered His kingdom and brought praise to His holy name.

    As we look into the life of Abigail this week, we'll see a woman of wisdom and faith. She took bold action to prevent the potentially destructive actions of a future king, David, against a misguided and foolish man, Nabal. This story is yet another example of God's grace, mercy, blessing, protection, and intervention in the lives of those He has called to serve, worship, and believe in Him. Let's begin.


    DAY ONE

    1. Read 1 Samuel 25:1-11. According to verse 1, who died? How did the people respond to his death?

    2. Where did David go? (v.1)

    3. Read verses 2-4 and describe the man and his wife.
          HUSBAND:
          WIFE:

    4. What did David hear about Nabal and his activity? (v.4)

    5. What were David's instructions to his men? (vv.5-8) Be specific.

    6. How did Nabal respond to David's men in verses 9-11?

    7. Read 1 Chronicles 29:11-12. Who really owned all that Nabal thought was his?


    LESSONS AND APPLICATIONS

    1. Samuel's death brought sorrow because he was honored in Israel's history. Have you mourned for someone because you missed their spiritual joy and friendship?

    2. Riches on earth do not necessarily bring wisdom or honor. What has clouded your spiritual wisdom because of its worldly hold on you?

    3. God does not honor selfishness. When are you most tempted to be selfish? What can you do about it?

    4. Not honoring the goodness of another person is foolish and selfish. Do you owe honor to someone because of their kindness to you?

    5. God is the owner and giver of all things. What are you holding on to because you think it's yours?
