A Once and Future King
In a significant way, all of 1 Samuel so far has been introduction. The main character, the one who so points us to Jesus, is David. The saga of Saul is not over but this week the spotlight moves from him to the coming king. Seems a most unlikely choice, youngest of the family, left out of the line-up when the prophet appears. Yet he is the one God chooses. Seeing that again may teach us a thing or two.
