Two Ways (Psalm 1 and 2)

Kiss the Son (2 Samuel 9)

Scorn the Son (2 Samuel 10)

  1. Psalm 1 describes two ways. What is the end result of each of these ways or paths? 
  2. What is the significance and meaning of Psalm 2:10-12. What does this have to do with 2 Samuel 9 and 10? How does it describe life in general? 
  3. What do we learn about the gospel and our King Jesus from the story of David’s kindness to Mephibosheth?
  4. In 2 Samuel 10, Hanun mocked and humiliated the messengers from David. He chose to scorn the king and found ruin and destruction as a result. Two paths always present themselves: the proud Hanun or the humble and adopted Mephibosheth. Those who scorn the Son, ultimately rage in vain. We must remember, our faith in the King of Kings and Lord of Lords must be undaunted no matter who the enemy is that comes against the church. Remind the group of Revelation 19:11-21 and the judgment waiting for those who scorn the king.
