    Verbal Miscommunication

    • 1012 Words
    • 5 Pages

    While most people growing up and attending school received the most recognition when they got correct answers, not questions. As life continues, this incentive continues. In a discussion between comedian Louis C.K. and the creator of the TED conference, Richard Saul Wurman, Wurman makes an interesting comment that, “In school, we are rewarded for having the answer, not for asking a good question. Which may explain why kids—who start off asking endless “why” and “what if” questions—gradually ask fewer and fewer of them as they progress through grade school.’” (Wurman). Children begin to learn at young ages that it is “more important” to have the right answers instead of the right questions. Therefore, children stop asking questions which then results in them not being able to gain deeper insights. This difficulty to gain deeper insights thus holds back children, who grow up to becoming adults, to become creators and to change the world. Without questions, people are not able to gain the knowledge required to accomplish such triumphs. On the other hand, asking too many questions can cause someone to be less independent on their own thinking. When someone…

    Divergently, David became known throughout the Holy Bible in multiple stories. To begin with, King Saul had failed his kingdom, so Samuel, a prophet, was in search of a new king (Pope 72). While in a pondering motion, Samuel heard God speaking to him, “I will send thee to Jesse, the Bethlehemite: for I have provided a king among his many sons” (1 Samuel 16:1). Insolently, Jesse and seven of his sons went to the palace and God rejected each one. While David was tending the sheep, God anointed him…

    Solomon's Disobedience

    • 1004 Words
    • 5 Pages

    why did the people of Israel desire a king? Saul, David, and Solomon are the most well-known kings of Israel, and the common attribute that each king either excelled in or struggled with was obedience. Obedience is what God asked from each king; unfortunately, not every king obeyed the commands of the Lord. Originally, they were not supposed to a king, but the people of Israel did not trust God and wanted to follow other nations. Samuel at the time was getting old and decided to appoint his sons…

    to predict what Israel does about God not wanting them to have a king. Samuel intercedes for Israel and God says that they can have a king, but He ain’t happy about it. God anoints Saul as king over Israel which ventrally ends up going horribly, just as God told Israel it would. Saul inevitably falls out of favor with God, and God anoints a new king named David. God really really loves David. He even goes so far as to call David “a man after God’s own heart,” which had to be the biggest…

    RICHARD RODGERS Question: “Is the book of Jonah fiction? How could a person survive three days and nights in a fish’s belly? Was he swallowed by a fish or a mammal?” First: Although it has been argued that the Old Testament book of Jonah is a fairy tale, the Lord Himself referred to it as a sign that His teaching was true. (Matthew 12: 39-41) Fiction proves nothing. Second: Whether this was a miracle or the providential operation of God the facts remain the same. God may have performed a…

    King Saul began his reign as an obedient nagid king, leading the people in covenant faithfulness toward God. He soon changed to a melek king, seeking his own glory and power. This change brought civil strife, division, and death upon God's people, instead of the shalom Israel was to experience. Because of this, Saul and his dynasty were rejected by God. Saul’s background and early life reflect that he had the potential to be a nagid king. Saul complied with the rules a king must obey. Saul was…

    The High Cost of Sin David was a man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22), and one of the most talented characters of the Old Testament. He was not only a king, he was a poet, a musician, a mighty warrior and humble. David was brave enough to kill a lion and a bear, and noble enough that he refused to kill Saul because he was God’s anointed. (I Samuel 26:23) David was a good man; he was one of God’s favorites; yet, he fell into deep sin and the Bible doesn’t hide the scars on him. “It happened…
