Oh my, here we go! a Big list of passages to read today, but not really much more than we usually read. Remember, if it is a repeat, it probably means that it is important! Please read: 2 Samuel 5:1-3, 1 Chronicles 11:1-3, 1 Chronicles 12:23-40, 2 Samuel 5:17-25, 1 Chronicles 14:8-17, 2 Samuel 5:6-10, 1 Chronicles 11:4-9, 2 Samuel 5:13, 2 Samuel 5:4-5, 5:11-12, 1 Chronicles 14:1-2, 1 Chronicles 13:1-5, 2 Samuel 6:1-11, and 1 Chronicles 13:6-14 (phew!). You got this! I’ll be brief – you’ve already read a lot today!
It’s been 15ish years since Samuel anointed David king – and now he finally becomes king of all of Israel. Can you believe it?
“All the leaders of Israel met with King David at Hebron, and the king made a treaty with them in the presence of God. And so they anointed David king over Israel” (2 Samuel 5:3 MSG)
God is faithful always, even if it seems to take a while! It’s good to see the tribes of Israel rallying again, and we see some names today to remember for later (Solomon for example). Big day today!
