Notes from the Journey with David – 125

125. But Shammah took his stand in the middle of the field (2 Samuel 23:12).

This warrior defended his ground. He stood in the middle of the lentil field that likely provided much for the community and he wouldn’t give up the land. Great warriors know what is valuable–ethics, truth, righteousness–and they don’t let that ground be taken from them easily. Too often, people compromise and trade what is valuable for what will get them through another day. But the great warriors know when it’s time to stand for what they have, and hold their ground even at great peril. Undoubtedly, Shammah was a hero to those who depended on this field, but he’s more than that. He’s an example of a man standing for what he believes in. And that challenges each of us to do the same.
