If you just try and skim the surface of David he seems, well… nuts. He kills lions and bears with his hands. He fights giants. He dances in the street.
If you decided to dance through your neighborhood today you would probably be shunned by your neighbors and your doctor might prescribe some mood stabilizing medication. In David’s case though God was pleased. This post is not an endorsement for you to dance a jig through your neighborhood. You need to talk to God about that.
David doesn’t really fit in to the norm when it comes to most personalty profiles.
- He mourned the death of his mortal enemy Saul. He seems to easily love his enemies and wait on God to deliver justice.
- His psalms are incredibly transparent. He shares with us his highest of highs and his lowest of lows. This is difficult for many of us.
- David is a lover and a fighter. Very much like God.
- He kills Uriah but not Nathan. He knows when to repent. This was part of Saul’s downfall.
