About this Coloring Page

This is the 3rd coloring sheet in our Bible Heroes series. Our plan is to alternate male and female people from the Bible.  One of the thoughts I have about creating these is that God is the REAL hero behind each story.  That is why I included so many references on the Moses page to God himself.

The large illustration shows a young shepherd boy David, he is marveling at the goodness of God toward him. The caption is from 2 Samuel 7:18

Who am I, Sovereign Lord, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far?

In the scene, David is standing with a sling and three small stones in a wilderness scene. You could imagine this as one of the moments in his life where he practiced the skills that God would one day use in battle to defeat the Goliath and save Israel.

Sunday School children will enjoy this coloring sheet. It would also be an excellent Bible activity in the family or home-school. We recommend colored pencils rather than wax crayons. The finer tip of the pencil allows more detailed illustration artwork.
