THE LIFE OF KING DAVID
Have you ever been the last one chosen in a schoolyard pick? Then you know how David felt.
His own father didn't even consider him when Samuel came to choose a king from among his sons.
Then Samuel said to Jesse, "Are all your sons here?" And he said, "There remains the youngest, but behold, he is keeping the sheep" ( I Samuel 16:11).
David was a dark horse. An unlikely choice. But the Lord looked at his heart and used him.
That should give each of us, unlikely though we are, great hope!
