David and Goliath. David, the man after God's own heart. David, the psalmist, warrior, and king.
We know much about the life of David, but have we ever considered him as a model for our own walk with the Lord, right now, today?
Mighty King David sought God. As seen in 2 Samuel 6, David sang and danced before the Lord, even when those of his own household failed to understand him. In fact, when David's wife Mihal, Saul's daughter, mocked his singing and dancing before the Lord, David tells her, "It was before the LORD, who chose me instead of your father and all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel. Therefore I will play music before the LORD. And I will be even more undignified than this, and will be humble in my own sight" (2 Samuel 6:21). Here the king of Israel is seeking the Lord with such humility and brokenness. What a model for all of us!
David also sought to bless others, giving graciously to his friend Jonathan's disabled son, Mephibosheth. David left his throne, again humbling himself, to give sacrificially to one who had no means of paying him back. David even tells Mephibosheth, "Do not fear, for I will surely show you kindness for Jonathan your father's sake, and will restore to you all the land of Saul your grandfather; and you shall eat bread at my table continually" (2 Samuel 9:7).
