Notes from the Journey with David – Part 68

68. David reigned over all Israel, doing what was just and right for all his people (2 Samuel 8:15).
God’s judgment describing David’s rule begins with a single sentence. The focus is on justice for the people. While the preceding verses describe David’s military conquests, the ultimate descriptor of his rule is found here. A king is to bring justice for his people. Against the backdrop of today’s Middle East tyrants, this emphasis provides a stark contrast. Surely the wealth of the region offered David the same potential for abuses of power, but his righteousness wins the day, and that’s what gains God’s approval of his leadership. Modern leaders ought make note of this verse.
