2 Samuel 11-12; Psalm 51 – David, David David. How does King David get caught in such foolish circumstances? What do we learn from his experiences with Bathsheba and Uriah? Is there hope for David? Patricia Auxier is with us.
1 Samuel 18-24 – Jonathan and David are totally BFFs. Why is Saul jealous of David’s honor among the Israelites? Saul attempts to kill David numerous times. Jonathan is loyal to David and protects him. What do we learn about pride and envy from Jonathan? Likewise, what of it from Saul? Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS is with us.
1 Samuel 9-16 – Saul is crowned as Israel’s first king, but after a promising start, he is weakened by his own foolishness, first offering burnt offerings without the authority to do so, and then in failing to utterly destroy the Amalekites. David is raised up to replace Saul. David is a young shepherd and slays Goliath. How do we sometimes act like both Saul and David? Sam Dodini is with us.
1 Samuel 2; 3; 8 – The sons of Eli commit serious transgressions but Eli falls short in his bid to reprimand them, thus receiving a reprimanding himself.

In better news: Samuel is called by the Lord and Israel wants a king. Download now and download often!
