So David arose early in the morning and left the flock with a keeper and took the supplies and went as Jesse had commanded him. 1 Samuel 17:20
Jesse, David’s father, sent him on an errand. I am impressed at David’s obedience and thoughtfulness in taking care of his other responsibilities. The Bible says he left the flock with a keeper. In doing this, the door opened for one of David’s greatest opportunities in his life… to kill Goliath.
How often have I missed big opportunities because I didn’t see the significance of delivering lunch to my brothers… a menial task.
God, I want to recognize the spiritual and eternal value of every small thing in life. So, I dedicate every moment this day to You.
