When Times Are Tough(Lesson 4)
1 Samuel 30
  •  1 Three days later, when David and his men
    arrived home at their town of Ziklag, they found
    that the Amalekites had made a raid into the
    Negev and Ziklag they had crushed Ziklag and
    burned it to the ground. 2 They had carried off
    the women and children and everyone else but
    without killing anyone.  3 When David and his men
    saw the ruins and realized what had happened to
    their families, 4 they wept until they could weep
    no more. 5 Davids two wives, Ahinoam from
    Jezreel and Abigail, the widow of Nabal from
    Carmel, were among those captured. 6 David was
    now in great danger because all his men were very
    bitter about losing their sons and daughters, and
    they began to talk of stoning him. But David
    found strength in the LORD his God.
  •  7 Then he said to Abiathar the priest, Bring me
    the ephod! So Abiathar brought it. 8 Then David
    asked the LORD, Should I chase after this band
    of raiders? Will I catch them?

  •  And the LORD told him, Yes, go after them. You
    will surely recover everything that was taken
    from you!
  •  9 So David and his 600 men set out, and they
    came to the brook Besor
  • 10 But 200 of the men were too exhausted to cross
    the brook, so David continued the pursuit with
    400 men.
  •  11 Along the way they found an Egyptian man in a
    field and brought him to David. They gave him
    some bread to eat and water to drink. 12 They
    also gave him part of a fig cake and two clusters
    of raisins, for he hadnt had anything to eat or
    drink for three days and nights. Before long his
    strength returned.
  •  13 To whom do you belong, and where do you come
    from? David asked him.
  •    I am an Egyptianthe slave of an Amalekite,
    he replied. My master abandoned me three days
    ago because I was sick. 14 We were on our way
    back from raiding the Kerethites in the Negev,
    the territory of Judah, and the land of Caleb,
    and we had just burned Ziklag.

  •  15 Will you lead me to this band of raiders?
    David asked.
  •    The young man replied, If you take an oath in
    Gods name that you will not kill me or give me
    back to my master, then I will guide you to
  •  16 So he led David to them, and they found the
    Amalekites spread out across the fields, eating
    and drinking and dancing with joy because of the
    vast amount of plunder they had taken from the
    Philistines and the land of Judah. 17 David and
    his men rushed in among them and slaughtered them
    throughout that night and the entire next day
    until evening. None of the Amalekites escaped
    except 400 young men who fled on camels. 18 David
    got back everything the Amalekites had taken, and
    he rescued his two wives. 19 Nothing was missing
    small or great, son or daughter, nor anything
    else that had been taken. David brought
    everything back. 20 He also recovered all the
    flocks and herds, and his men drove them ahead of
    the other livestock. This plunder belongs to
    David! they said.

  •  21 Then David returned to the brook Besor and
    met up with the 200 men who had been left behind
    because they were too exhausted to go with him.
    They went out to meet David and his men, and
    David greeted them joyfully. 22 But some evil
    troublemakers among Davids men said, They
    didnt go with us, so they cant have any of the
    plunder we recovered. Give them their wives and
    children, and tell them to be gone.
  •  23 But David said, No, my brothers! Dont be
    selfish with what the LORD has given us. He has
    kept us safe and helped us defeat the band of
    raiders that attacked us. 24 Who will listen when
    you talk like this? We share and share
    alikethose who go to battle and those who guard
    the equipment. 25 From then on David made this a
    decree and regulation for Israel, and it is still
    followed today.
  •  26 When he arrived at Ziklag, David sent part of
    the plunder to the elders of Judah, who were his
    friends. Here is a present for you, taken from
    the LORDs enemies, he said.
  •  27 The gifts were sent to the people of the
    following towns David had visited Bethel,
    Ramoth-negev, Jattir, 28 Aroer, Siphmoth,
    Eshtemoa, 29 Racal, the towns of the
    Jerahmeelites, the towns of the Kenites, 30
    Hormah, Bor-ashan, Athach, 31 Hebron, and all the
    other places David and his men had visited.

Five Stages How Paul Did It
in the Book of Philemon
A. Compliment Stage (vv .4-7) I always thank my
God when I pray for you, Philemon, because I keep
hearing about your faith in the Lord Jesus and
your love for all of Gods people for your
kindness has often refreshed the hearts of Gods
B. Compromise Stage (vv. 8-13).. I appeal to you
to show kindness to my child, Onesimus. I became
his father in the faith while here in prison.
Onesimus hasnt been of much use to you in the
past, but now he is very useful to both of us. I
am sending him back to you, and with him comes my
own heart.
C. Choice Stage (vv. 14) But I didnt want to do
anything without your consent. I wanted you to
help because you were willing, not because you
were forced.

me your partner, welcome him as you would welcome
me. If he has wronged you in any way or owes you
anything, charge it to me.

I write this letter that you will do what I ask
