Read 1 Samuel 25 with a study buddy–this is a looooong story, hang in there!
Draw RED lines to the words that describe Nabal and BLUE lines to the words that describe Abigail
What would have happened if Abigail had not done what she did?
What could you do in these situations to show courage like Abigail and make peace?
- You get to the playground and run over to your favorite swing! You have one hand on the chain of the swing and are getting a piece of mulch out of your shoe with the other hand. A little girl hops onto the swing you have in your hand and asks for you to give her a push. What can you do to make peace?
- Some neighbors come into the yard and start playing with your soccer ball and get into a fight over what game to play with it. What can you do to make peace?
- You eat an extra serving of broccoli to earn the last chocolate chip muffin at dinner, but your play date doesn’t like what your mom cooked and asks if they can have the last muffin. What can you do to make peace?
- Your pause your Wii game to go to the bathroom and when you come back your cousin started a new game and lost all of your points. What can you do to make peace?
It won’t always be easy and it might mean you have to lose, give up something, but as we can see from all of these Bible stories you should do whatever you can to make peace. Look up Matthew 5:9 and see what God promises to those who are peacemakers:

Can you write Romans 12:8 here from memory?
