Today's reading I Samuel 28:20- II Samuel 12:10
" And David went on and grew great, and the Lord God of hosts was with him." II Samuel 5:10 KJB
Because David wanted to please God by building a temple even though he did not build the temple he was just able to gather supplies for Solomon his son. God was even able to make it public that he was with David. God was not ashamed to say who he was associating with. David, like us, was not perfect and we know as Christians that God will never leave us or forsake us. I just find it interesting that God wanted everyone to know that he was associating himself with David.
Do I live such a life where the Lord God of hosts would want to make it public that he was with me? How do I treat my family, my neighbors, my enemies? Would God want to publicly associate with me? Would I want people to know I associate with God? Do I act in such a way that I would not want people to know that I am a Christian? This really gets me thinking.
