Someone once said if you want to improve your relationship with people, read Proverbs. If you want to grow your relationship with the Lord, read Psalms. Over the next three weeks, we will look at the questions David asked in the book of Psalms. King David spoke (sang) from his heart, freely expressing his emotions. Throughout the book of Psalms, he asked fifty-one questions. Enjoy this exploration into the heart of David as his questions lead us into the heart of God.

In your notebook or journal, record each questions, to whom it was asked, and the purpose of each question. Then consider what difference each question made to David.
