David starts off so well. When you read the story of David as king you read the story of an underdog that came to great power and prominence and still loved God and did his best to follow him. As we already know, things will change for David and he will not keep to his current convictions. It is a reminder to me that I could take steps backward if I don’t tend to my relationship with God. Just because I’ve grown spiritually does not mean that maturity stays if I quit working on it. My spiritual life will deteriorate just like unused muscles in the body. Let’s keep working out!
