Change Your Heart And Become King David rather Than King Saul

The manufacturer’s handbook provides for some fascinating insights.

I’ve been doing a character study of King David – the greatest King Israel ever had. Quite appropriate wit the current health problems of Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, being so much in the news.

I will resist the temptation to preach here and keep this very brief. The main difference between King David and King Saul was in their reaction to sin. Saul gave excuses, David repented immediately and cried to the Lord. That’s all.

That’s what made the difference between one of the worst Kings Israel ever had and the best.

Kind of scary isn’t it? That the stuff of life is made of such small details like the name on some pet tags getting mixed up and a beloved pet being lost forever. Or some NY lawyers making a simple choice in preferring to go in the direction of investing in precious metals and ending up making a fortune just because they were at the right place at the right time. While some other guy works hard their whole life and ends up with little or nothing to show for it. Life is really about seemingly small differences.

That is very, very scary.
