I love a good speech, don’t you? David’s last public words are a great contrast on good & bad leadership. Read 23:2-6 again.
Bethany was over tonight (we are rarely in the same time zone, let alone the same living room, so this is notable). We found ourselves talking about godly leadership and authority, what it looks like and what stems from it.
David is a man who knows what it’s like to walk alongside God. Even in the wake of immense sexual sin, he is still deeply anchored by his relationship with God. We’ve read about David’s highs and lows as Israel’s king and everything in between.
Here are a few questions I’m asking myself as we close out the books of 1 & 2 Samuel:
-What can we learn about Israel’s relationship with God?
-What can we learn from Saul?
-What can we learn from David?
-Who do you relate to more and why?
Tomorrow we’re starting the book of Matthew and the perfect King will arrive on the scene!
