We are taking a break for the summer until futher notice.

(Thursday 04/03/08) Abigail - Day 4

1. Read 1 Samuel 25:23-24a. How did Abigail approach David, the LORD's anointed?

2. What did she plead before him? (v.25)

3. From verse 26, list what you learn about the Lord and David.

4. In verse 27 Abigail presented gifts of food to David and his men. What did she ask David to do for her in verse 28?

Abigail accepted responsibility for her husband's sin. In verse 28 she asked David to forgive his "maidservant." This gives us a picture of her status as Nabal's wife, even though she was not the one who committed the sin. The family often faces the consequences for sin committed by one member. Abigail was wise and godly in asking David to forgive her family of this sin. (Neh. 1:1-11)

5. Read 1 Samuel 25:28-31, and list the things Abigail acknowledged to David about his future.

6. The words that Abigail spoke about David were very specific. Did these things later come to pass? (2 Sam. 5:1-5)


1. Knowing the truth leads to active participation in the kingdom of God. What are you asking the LORD to reveal to you in your spiritual life right now?

2. The LORD is Alive! What are you doing to actively fellowship with Him?

3. The LORD restrains His people. How does God restrain believers today?

4. The LORD directs His people. How does God reveal His direction in a believer's heart?

5. God commands believers to practice forgiveness. Is there someone you need to forgive today? How do you model forgiveness in your home?

6. God has a plan for our lives. Are you actively pursuing God's plan for your life today?
