David wasn’t the first choice in his family to be Israel’s king. Was he overlooked because he was so young? Or because they needed him out in the field, tending sheep? Whatever the reason, it’s clear God chose David to be the next king because of what He saw inside of him, not what was on the outside. Don’t miss the conversation with our guest Crystal Bowman. That’s today on "Discover the Word."
Sometimes for a really smart person to learn something, they have to be humble enough to want to learn. Nicodemus, a leading member of the Sanhedrin, came to Jesus with some sincere questions.

In high school, we joke about the different cliques that form. The cheerleaders, the jocks, the drama club. If we’re not careful, church members sometimes form groups that make it difficult for newcomers to join.
Too often, we build ourselves up by putting other people down. In fact, it’s so common we don’t always realize when we do it!
We don’t use the term self-righteous much these days. Yet the tendency to have an over-inflated view of ourself is something all of us struggle with from time to time.
As parents, we try to distribute love to our children equally. No child gets special favor. But it’s not always easy! Let's reflect on a family relationship described by Jesus, and commonly known as the parable of the prodigal son.
