Back to one of David’s legacy’s his mighty men. The people are now saying, “Wow, have you seen David’s mighty men, talk about quality leaders and warriors. Hero’s who once where rift-raft and discontented, in debt, stressed out men and women’ Wow, how they are now “Mighty!” All because David influenced their lives positively.

1. You might be thinking- “What did he do to influence them positively.”

a. He taught them to praise the Lord no matter what.

b. He taught them that their strength came from the Lord.

c. He taught them to inquire of the Lord before they did anything.

d. He demonstrated how to handle failure and falling into sin.

e. He taught them how to serve with their whole hearts minds and souls and all their strength.

f. He taught them how to forgive and show mercy to your enemies.

g. He taught them how to deal with rebellion from your own family members.

h. He taught them who would raise them up out of the miry clay and bless them.

i. He taught them to put God first!

j. He taught them to never blame God for their own sin-recall when he counted his fighting men in II Samuel 24. He modeled to his men never to blame God for the consequences of their sin.

i. But instead drop to your knees, take responsibility “I am the one who has sinned and done wrong.”

ii. Then pay the price, “No, I insist on paying you for it. I will not sacrifice to the Lord my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing.”
