Most of the information I used in this year's challenge came from 1st and 2nd Samuel and 1st Chronicles. I recommend a complete reading of these books for the full story of David and the Mighty Men. Although I can only glean the stories of David as a 21st Century American woman with filters belonging to such, my knowledge of ancient Jewish culture could fill less than one hair on my head. As always, please read and research for yourself my "take" on an ancient group of men. My prayer always is for the reader, no matter where on your journey with Jesus you may be, finds a small nugget of truth about God and who He is and His plan for you, in the words I "speak" here.
If you are a pastor or teacher of the Word of God, I pray you are spurred on to dig deeper, to find greater truths and applications than this Grandmother has found so you can share with His people as you minister and teach them.
God's ancient word is easily applied to today's modern world. I pray He opens the eyes of your hearts to see this truth.
