Today's reading: 2 Samuel 23:1-7

As an old man who knows his life is coming to a close, David's dedication and commitment to God remains strong. Like we've seen many times before, David openly and boldly recognizes God and His goodness, and the fact that He is sovereign over all and blesses and upholds those who live righteously for Him. I was drawn to, and moved by, the beautiful way David describes how God responds to godly leadership in verses 3 and 4.

"When one rules justly over men, ruling in the fear of God, he dawns on them like the morning light, like the sun shining forth on a cloudless morning, like rain that makes grass to sprout from the earth."

What did you see or learn about God from David's words? What did this passage convey about being committed to, and living fully for, Him? Tami
