It is evident that this type of leader is rare. We could point to all the sins and bad choices David made in his life, but there was an overarching character quality in David that pleased God. Even before God selected David, He said to Saul through Samuel, “The Lord has sought out a man after his own heart” (1 Samuel 13:14). Saul was rejected because he was impatient and acted independent of God’s will.
God is still seeking men like David. He is looking at you and me. What does he see? Are we passionate about being this kind of man? If not, what is hindering you from becoming this kind of man? Will you use this moment to rededicate your life to do God’s will – His alone?
