In the Field

Re:Verse passage – 1 Samuel 16:5-13 (day five)  “And Samuel said to Jesse, “Are these all the children?” And he said, “There remains yet the youngest, and behold, he is tending the sheep.”
God was already  preparing David to be His King. Amazingly, David’s best training and preparation came in a pasture not a palace. The gifts, skills, attitudes, and perspectives that were needed to be King were being developed and honed as a child in the field. Care, courage, faithfulness, determination were some of the lessons David was learning while tending the sheep (remember Jesus’ words to Peter).
There were no robe fittings yet. There were no interviews or press releases. Samuel goes to Ramah and David goes back to the sheep.
What lessons and insights are God teaching in the ordinary and routine things of life? (great opportunity for parents and grandparents to help children sense and see God at work)
