Who are the most famous kings, the best leaders?
Most well-known for hundreds of years, in Western civilization, were David and Solomon. David, youthful slayer of the giant Goliath, was known for his love and reverence of God. He wasn't soft-spoken about that, or anything! Solomon, David's son, was very wise as a king. However, didn't he mess up his personal life with too many women and too many horses? He lost direction, lost sight of his Lord.
Here in the United States, everyone has a chance to direct his or her own destiny. In a sense, every one is his (or her) own king.
In the opportunities and set-backs of life, we can take charge. Let's not waste the opportunities. Let's not let the challenges or distractions rob our spirits of hope and joy.
Unlike Solomon, let's keep our eyes on the best source of wisdom, God. Like David, let's keep our hearts directed toward the author and strength of life, and that's God.
