Applications from 1 Kings

1 Kings 1:2

The Story:

David is near the end of his life. His health is failing and he is cold. His helpers cannot keep him warm so they bring in a young lady to lay with him. This is nothing sexual (4b), her body heat will radiate and warm the old king.

The Application:

Be thankful for those who will think toward your good.
(Verse 2 Wherefore his servants said unto him, Let there be sought for my lord the king a young virgin: and let her stand before the king, and let her cherish him, and let her lie in thy bosom, that my lord the king may get heat.)

David’s servants couldn’t keep him warm with clothes, so they devised a way for their King to stay warm. Had David mistreated them early on in his life, they may not have cared so much now that he needs help. Be thankful for those who will think toward your good.

Keep watch for the 3rd part of this 4 part post: When Life Gives You Lemons.
