1 Samuel

The Lord sent Samuel to Jesse’s house to choose his King from among Jesse’s sons. All were present except the youngest and Samuel sent for him. When David arrived, Samuel said, “There – anoint him!

When Samuel anointed David King, “the spirit of the Lord rushed upon him from that day on.”

Lord God, David was a young shepherd boy. Your Mother, Mary, was a young handmaid and your Son was the village carpenter. Your love for simple folks is a blessing upon us all.
