When David’s time to die drew near, he charged his son Solomon, saying: 2“I am about to go the way of all the earth. Be strong, be courageous, 3and keep the charge of the Lord your God, walking in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, his ordinances, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, so that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn. 4Then the Lord will establish his word that he spoke concerning me: ‘If your heirs take heed to their way, to walk before me in faithfulness with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail you a successor on the throne of Israel.’ (1 Kings 2:1-4, NRSV)
Do you walk before the Lord in faithfulness with all your heart?
Not an easy thing to do. Even David failed at times.
We all fall down, but what is important is if we stay down or get back up. The saints will rise, and continue to try and walk with God.
So always get back up and strive to walk before God in faithfulness with all your heart.
