David – An Early-Riser

1 Sam. 17:17-22

While David’s older brothers and the rest of the armies of Israel were on the battle field against the Philistines, Jesse, his father, sent him to the field to take food to his brethren and to know about their well-being. The Bible recorded that David rose early in the morning and headed for the field. This tells us a lot about the person of David – [i] He carried out his father’s instructions with prompt obedience, considering the errand as utmost for the day; [ii] He was a diligent and industrious young man who was already used to rising early to attend to the sheep; [iii] He considered the experience of the battle field as a privilege; and [iv] While he was away on the errand, he kept the sheep in a safe hand. Christians have much to learn about David here. No good shepherd will leave his sheep to stray away except a hireling. Whether we are self-employed or civil servants, we should be known for diligence and obedience to constituted authorities.

Point of Emphasis:   The king’s errand demands urgency

Prayer Point:            O Lord make me an early-riser; to be diligent in all that I do.
