WEEK OF MARCH 19-25
FROM RABBI ADRIAN
A man after God's own heart. This was said of King David, but what does this mean? David was an adulterer, a killer, and he had many wives. He made so many mistakes that movies and thousands of books have been written about him. Yet, one of the first times we hear God speaking about David is found in 1 Samuel through the prophet to King Saul, "But now your kingship will not last. Adonai has sought for Himself a man after His own heart. So, Adonai will appoint him as ruler over His people—because you have not guarded what Adonai commanded you" (italics mine, 1 Samuel 13:14).
Well, unlike King Saul, David had faith while Saul refused to trust in God's word (1Samuel 15:22). Hence, Saul had pride while David walked with a heart of softness. His faith was paramount, which is seen when he confronted Goliath as a young man, barely even able to lift Saul's sword. Second, David had trust. Once he was anointed by God as King of Israel, he was in constant threat of losing his life but he remained trusting in God, even when he had the opportunity to kill Saul (1 Samuel 24:12-13). Third, his love. He cared about the people God put him in charge of (2 Samuel 12), even when it cost him part of his life. Fourth, David's humility. When he was told his dynasty would last forever, he said, "Who am I, Adonai . . ." (2 Samuel 7:18). Fifth, he was a man of integrity by taking responsibility of his mistakes. Sixth, David forgives and is forgiven by his willingness to confess (2 Samuel 12:2). Lastly, David worshipped God with all his heart. We read in Psalm 51, "Be gracious to me, O God . . . (v.3), blot out my transgressions . . . (v.3c), create in me a clean heart . . . (v.12), etc. It does not take a genius to recognize that David had a repentant heart.
So, what is David's secret? He lived day by day and experienced compassion, strength, faith, and all that comes with the successes and failures of life. Yet, he understood God's grace in knowing that he was worthy of death and pain, but found favor regardless, knowing that his life belonged to God. Can we have a heart after God as King David did?
