Passage:  1 Samuel 20:1-3

1.  What do David’s questions in verse 1 reveal about him as a man?  Why do you think Jonathan didn’t directly answer David’s questions?

2.  Jonathan had a lot of faith in the strength of his relationship with his father.  Was his faith misplaced?  Why or why not?

3.  Was David truly a step from death?

4.  Application:  Since we cannot know the day or hour of our death, how should we be living?  What is the potential price of allowing ourselves to rationalize away the importance of this issue?
