We could spend weeks talking about David’s leadership, but I simply want to examine one area: his respect for God’s will.
Even though David could have taken Saul’s life, he respected God’s appointment of Saul as Israel’s king.
Even though David was paying for the consequences of his sin, he understood and respected God’s answer in loss of his son.
Even though David was prepared to build a temple that honored God, he respected God’s decision that Solomon would build it.
One of the reasons his leadership was great is because he respected God’s will.
