Notes from the Journey with David – 140

140. Be strong, show yourself a man, and observe what the Lord your God requires (1 Kings 2:2).

That’s what a man is–one who submits himself as a servant to the will of the One who is greater. David doesn’t define manhood as being self-driven or self-sufficient, but instead points his son to be a man by making the choice to obey God. The passage goes on to promise prosperity and blessing for such obedience, but no one can make this decision for Solomon. He must choose the path he will take and he must decide whose life pattern he will follow. There will be many pressures for him to follow various paths, but he can best express his manhood by choosing what others won’t choose–the path laid out by God.
