If I knew how to write scripts about warriors and battles, I definitely would be starting one based on the Three and the Thirty. This is another chapter of the Bible that I don’t ever recall reading before, and let me tell you, I was fascinated! It seems like a bit of a wrap-up for David’s reign in listing all his best soldiers. Plus, the subtitle for the first section of this chapter in my NLT version is “David’s Last Words.” That caught my eye right off the bat. I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to King David! His adventures and struggles are some of my favorite stories of the Bible. Alas, all good things must come to an end, but better yet, all endings mean new beginnings. I’ve gleaned some life-changing lessons from reading 1 and 2 Samuel this go-‘round. While I’m sad to see David’s reign coming to an end, I’m excited to see what God has in store for the Israelites in the near future.
