Why Can’t We Be Friends?

Abigail Intervenes | 1 Samuel 25:1-35

In week three, we jump back to 1 Samuel 25:1-35, where we find a story about a woman named Abigail that starts with King David. He was furious with a man named Nabal, who mistreated his soldiers. David decided to get revenge until the man’s wife, Abigail, used her peacemaking skills and stopped something that could have been horrible. Even though she was not responsible for her husband’s offense, she realized she could play a role in making peace.

Love others because God loves you.

Bottom Line

You can help others make peace.

Peace is often about helping stop an argument before it can escalate into something worse. Acting as a peacemaker between others will take time and energy, but God can give us the strength to help others make peace. Sometimes our outside perspective is what someone might need to see a peaceful solution. We want kids to know that with God’s help, they can make waves by helping others make peace.

Message to Parents

An important question likely arises for any boy growing up in the Christian faith, as both a reflection of aging and a maturing of character. The question is this, what does it really mean to be a man of God? Societal wisdom suggests that every child enters a transitionary period from being a child to being an adult. We regard this time as adolescence, and by the end, ideally, the teenager who becomes an adult is an adult not just by age but by character. A girl becomes a woman. And a boy becomes a man. However, for a boy to become a man of God, he must adopt a character that is not like the world but rather a reflection of Jesus.
“Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2)
