God Promises David an Important Place in History

Season after Pentecost, Proper 11, Year B, Old Testament
Scripture: 2 Samuel 7:1-14a

We continue to remember Israel’s leaders and how they strived to serve God. Each had their own challenges and gifts. The need for faithful leadership continues today and we seek wisdom from how these leaders sought the welfare of their people and showed their devotion to God.

David wants to build a temple for the Ark of the Covenant. God tells David that establishing his legacy is more important. God promises that David’s lineage will enjoy special favor with God.
