June 7 - 13 Bible Readings:
In a Nutshell: Notice the dispositions of Saul and David in their battles, including them both in the battle with Goliath. There are similarities in the way people fight their outward battles and their inward battles; confidence vs. confusion, faith vs. fear, innovation vs. tradition. Everyone has battles; it's those fought, lost and won at the Cross of Christ that are successful, forgiven and counted victorious in God's eyes. Excuses are useless, vanity is poisonous, fear is a lack of faith and paralyzing!
Ice Breaker: Describe a time you felt like you were "double minded."
