A Boy Named David
God said David was a man after His own heart. David was a simple boy, a keeper of sheep, but he didn’t just sit around daydreaming about the clouds that passed overhead while the sheep grazed.
He took his job seriously, working the books for his
father’s sheep business. Planning
wise investments perhaps, counting the cost of the sheep and their care,
personally going out when there was danger and handling it himself, as
well as employing workers in the herds to be there when he was busy
David faced danger fearlessly, trusting that God
would protect Him because it was spoken in God’s Word that He would.
He defeated wild attacking animals using his bare
hands and simple caveman tools. He
was in good physical shape and ready at a moment’s notice to fill
another task his father needed done.
When he had to be with the sheep, he learned to play
music well, and he loved to write songs and lyrics.
He engaged his body, his mind and his heart in everything he did.
No wonder both God and the King admired him, and his brothers were
jealous of him.
When King Saul called for David to come to play the
harp to drive out the tormenting demons in his mind, David added that
chore to his ever-increasing workload, and he handled everything well and
in proper order.
He did not anticipate failure or evil or fill his
mind with “what ifs”. He
didn’t spend time gossiping or telling others what had happened with so
and so, or ruining anyone’s reputation.
He didn’t hang around with those who did those things, or who
criticized his father or king.
Everything with David was upright and yes and amen, just like God because David knew what God said and believed it was a true report.
There are many wonderful things to study about this boy named David and I'll add them here as I write them down.
Let's strive to be as industrious and hard working as David, as pure as David, and as wise as David. Let us wish only good upon all people and do no harm.
Some other great young people in the Bible were Joseph, whose good character despite horrible events saved his entire family, and Daniel who stood firmly FOR the commandments of his God, even if it meant he would be torn to shreds by lions or melted to death in a fiery furnace.
God bless you!
