Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Print the story and practice reading it aloud.
  • Print Leader Resource 1 and prepare to briefly present the information. Make copies so that interested participants can take one home.

Description of Activity

Ask key questions: When have I taken more than my share? When have I had something taken from me? Invite each person to answer.

Using the information in Leader Resource 1, David and Nathan Background Information, briefly set the stage for the story. Keep the background information brief, and offer copies of Leader Resource 1 to those who wish to take it home. Say, "In this story, God speaks through the prophet Nathan to call out King David's wrong-doing."

Read the story aloud.
