Our Speaker during Family Bible Hour was Mr Steve Modrzejewski.  He continued with lessons from David's life, starting with the events that occurred before he came on the scene as King. 
Here is a short summary of some of the lessons we can learn from 1 Samuel 6, and 7:

Lesson :  God's discipline is consistant & sure
And he smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the Lord, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and three score and ten men:  and the people lamented, because the Lord had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter. ~ 1 Samuel 6: 19
Lesson : God honors His commitment
And the children of Israel said to Samuel, Cease not to cry unto the Lord our God for us, that he will save us out of the hand of the Philistines.  And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered it for a burnt offering wholly unto the Lord :  and Samuel cried unto the Lord for Israel; and the Lord heard him.  And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering , the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel:  but the Lord thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them, and they were smitten before Israel.  ~ 1 Samuel 7: 8-10
Lesson:  A life of Faith is not necessarily passed down
And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel...And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment. ~ I Samuel 8: 1, 3
Practical applications: 
  • Live as a  Christians who expects the return of Jesus Christ anyday
  • Do not ever under-estimate the impact of your life on others
