and David his ten thousands.” I sam 18:7.
Troubles for David. Square in the face from his king. The last person on earth you expect with a javelin in his hand aimed at David. David only had a harp in his hand to soothe the pre-eminence. But the triumph of David proved too much. And women from all cities poured onto the streets to welcome David home at the expense of their sovereign.
And it is Providence at work from our first breath. Taking care of David and you and me.
