This lowly shepherd who became Israel’s king set a very high standard for leaders to come. He was a master delegater, mighty warrior, skilled musician, and displayed unswerving obedience to the Lord. His rule was the epitome of dedicated leadership, and his servant’s heart challenges men even today.
Above all, he was a worshipper who spent much time in solitude in God’s presence. The quality time spent in prayer, praise, and devotion are an example to us.
Apart from a few slip-ups, David exemplified the pattern for prophet, priest, and king.
PRAYER: Lord, we thank You for the example King David gave us. We all want to rule and reign in life like he did.
