Most of us, whether Christians or not, know the story of David and Goliath; probably one of the best known stories in the Bible. I’ve been reading up a lot lately about David and how closely we can all relate to him. For sure we are not all going to become kings as David did and we certainly can’t become an ancestor of Jesus.
When we think about David, what do we think?
Most of us immediately think of the young boy who slayed the mighty Goliath, but as well as being a giant killer, David was a humble shepherd, poet, warrior and a soldier who became King. He was an ancestor of Jesus; an amazing life story. One of the greatest men in the Old Testament, David displayed many of the qualities we all may like to have, but alongside that David was a liar, a betrayer, an adulterer and a murderer, yet he is remembered and respected for his true heart for God.
David had a powerful belief in the faithful and forgiving nature of God. He sinned many times, but he was quick to confess his sins from the heart.
David never took God’s understanding for granted, or His forgiveness lightly and in return God never held back his blessings. David experienced the joy of forgiveness, even when he had to suffer the consequences of his sins.
The Bible tells us that God referred to David as “A man after my own heart.” (Acts 13:22)
Just like David, as we progress through life, each of us is developing a personality, forging a reputation and developing personal qualities for which we will be remembered.
What do you think of your life so far?
What does God think of your life so far?
The Bible teaches us that how you live today determines how you will be remembered tomorrow.
What you do now does matter.
