March 29, 2016: Daily Bible Reading Commentary for 1 Samuel 16-20
Click here for the reading
Commentary: Saul has been rejected as King of Israel by the Lord and David has been anointed to take Saul’s place, however the transfer of power is anything but peaceful. David is the most unexpected successor, so unimportant that he was not even summoned to the meeting with Samuel!
Focus Verses: 17:28-33 Do you ever feel small? Unimportant? Useless? Completely forgettable? God can and will use you! David was the youngest, weakest, smallest brother. Unimportant and forgettable. But not to the Lord! Look how far David rose! God does not look at our outward characteristics, but at our hearts. What is the condition of your heart? How are you reacting to the Lord? What is his plan for your life?
