Commentary:  Saul has been rejected as King of Israel by the Lord and David has been anointed to take Saul’s place, however the transfer of power is anything but peaceful.  David is the most unexpected successor, so unimportant that he was not even summoned to the meeting with Samuel!  

Focus Verses:  16:14-23  Why do you think the Lord brought David into the service of Saul?  Could this have benefited David in preparation to be king?  Has the Lord ever placed you in a position where you learned something beneficial for the future?
