"Foo Fighter" David: God Redefines Your Family of Originseries: Jeff Jones, Chase Oaks Church
David was seen by others and likely by himself as the last person for God to choose to be something even close to king of the nation, of his people Israel. But what we see in the story is how God chooses differently than we think—God looks for something that all of us can choose to be. The Bible lets us know that what God looks for is openness to him, availability to him, humility before him. Jesus told us that if we want greater responsibility in the kingdom later, we just need to be faithful with what God has put in front of us now. As we are faithful in the small things, God will put us over bigger things later.
