This week, Emily shares all about King David . . . and his failings . . . and how God called him a man after His heart. How did David manage that?
When I read this:
The people-pleaser in me would have a hard time praying the same prayer as David. That part of me would demand I focus more energy on rectifying the situation with people than with God.
I nodded my head at the idea that I needed to focus my energy on rectifying situations with people before I did so with God.
How off-base I have been at times because I was so afraid to offend people. God forgives, right? But people? Not always.
So, of course, I needed to make sure I fixed any offenses I’d caused.
God does forgive. And He invites us into a relationship with Him. He tells us to set Him above anyone and anything else. This isn’t as easy for me as it should be. And those people-pleasing mindsets I’ve held to for years die hard.
In her post, Emily shares some great insight into the mindset of a God-pleaser. I hope you’ll read and glean as much as I have.
Join me over at Emily’s place and see what David did that helped him to be called a man after God’s heart.
