Saul Pees and Lives to Tell about It! Youth Bible Study on 1 Samuel 24


Saul Pees and Lives to Tell about It!

Brief: We can leave God to punish others if He needs to while we continue to act rightly.

(Printable Student Sheet available for Patreon supporters or with a purchase of King David, the Mighty Runt.)

Intro Question
Who was the last person who did something wrong to you? What was it?

What did you do in response?

Have you ever seen God punish someone? How so?

We’ve been reading about how King Saul wants to kill David because he knows David is more popular than he is and that God has chosen David to be king after him.

Scripture: 1 Samuel 24:1-12


What would you do if you were David in this situation?


Why does David say that he won’t kill Saul?

David says in verse 11 that he doesn’t want to be guilty of doing anything wrong. Just because Saul is doing something wrong to him doesn’t mean that he has to do something wrong to Saul.


How does David say that Saul will be punished?

David says he will let God punish Saul, not himself.

What can you learn from David’s example?

We can follow David’s example by making sure that we’re not doing something wrong to someone else, even if they’re doing something wrong to us. We can continue to act rightly and let God punish them if they need to be punished.
