Bible story: David is anointed as king

Creative activities based on the Bible story of David is anointed as king

In 1 Samuel chapter 16, we read about a young shepherd boy named David who was anointed by the prophet Samuel to become the next king of Israel. At the time, David was the youngest of his family and wasn't considered an important person. But God saw something special in David's heart and chose him to lead His people. It's a story of how God can use anyone, no matter how small or unimportant they may seem, to do great things for Him. David went on to become one of the greatest kings of Israel, and his story inspires us to trust in God's plan for our lives.
