David’s Band of Misfits
By Rick Boxx
May 11, 2011

In 1 Samuel 22, David’s on the run from King Saul. In David’s situation, I’d have a tendency to avoid people and go it alone, yet David was busy building an army of misfits.

In verse 2 we read, “All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their leader. About four hundred men were with him.” These rebels followed and protected David faithfully.

The key to his leadership success is summarized in Psalm 78:72, “And David shepherded them with integrity of heart with skillful hands he led them.”

If you have a daunting challenge ahead of you, rather than tackle it alone, consider building and leading a team. Even misfits can become extraordinary when well led.
