David’s at the end of his life. He’s got limited time to impart his wisdom to his family and kingdom. He uses his time to honor and praise God. Through these final words of David in 2 Samuel 23, we see that David has learned the importance of ruling his kingdom in the fear of the Lord. Because of God’s goodness, David’s family line will produce Jesus, the Savior of the world.
Time is fleeting. Life is full but the years go by fast. We all eventually find ourselves wondering what legacy we will leave when we’re gone. David teaches us the value and importance of passing on blessings from God so the children who come after you can succeed better than you.
