2 Samuel 23:8-39
King David was a mighty warrior. But one man, no matter how brave and mighty, cannot defend a country alone. David had a group of warriors called his mighty men who fought beside him, led his armies and protected him. These loyal men had been with David from the time when he was fleeing Saul and stood by him throughout his reign. Chapter 23 lists them and describes some of the greatest and their deeds. But why are these men listed in the Bible? Because every person’s contribution is important to God!! Every one of us has been given a task in this life and, to God, all of these tasks are important. Man’s History books may never record your deeds, but God’s will. If you are serving God, He will and does notice! Your actions are important. Each thing you do builds the kingdom of God just as every battle the mighty men won helped with the war!
