Instead we are going to read Psalm 31. You can do this in your Bibles OR you can click the link below to get a printed copy.
As you read....
- Circle any references to people who were either talking about David or plotting and scheming against him.
- Draw a box around any verses that mention what David is thinking or feeling or what action he is taking or will take.
- Place a star next to any verses that tell what God is doing or thinking during this incident in David's life.
- Go back and put a :) (smiley face) next to your favorite verse or section of this Psalm.
Note- You may also choose to use three different colored highlighters for the three different marks. (helpful when using and digital Bible)
After you have finished: What has this little markup exercise taught you? What principles can you draw from Psalm 31 when you are facing enemies or are the victim of gossip?
