Read 2 Samuel 8:1 through 14:33; Psalm 60:1–12

Due to his brilliance and diligent work ethic, the leadership of a local manufacturing company promoted Jared to a top position. Because of his age, many were concerned. However, Jared, a Christian, consistently sought God’s direction. He knew that God was the One who gave him success.
Within a few weeks, the four hundred workers Jared supervised learned he was honest and fair in all his decisions. He considered every change and how it would affect the workers. Soon, Jared became known for his humility and kindness. He, like David, desired to please God.
David reigned over all Israel, doing what was just and right for all his people (2 Samuel 8:15).
We know that God looks on the heart, not outward appearances. He seeks those who remind Him of His precious, much-loved Son. Each Christian, through the blood of Christ and God’s grace, is forgiven. As we yield to the Holy Spirit, we will become more like Christ.
