The reading in chapters 19 and 20 was interesting. I noticed much discontentment in the people of Israel. They were not happy with life under David and followed other men to find contentment. This much discontent led to and caused much of the problems for the people and heartache for David. Through all of the plots and infighting many people were hurt and died and even King David was grieved. In the church today discontent leads to much infighting and trouble. What should have been the solution for the people? The Israelites should have been content under the rule of David and found there contentment under his authority that was really given and bestowed on him by the covenant God. This is the same for the church today. The church needs to find contentment under the rule of King Jesus and the leaders He has placed over His church. Because this authority truly is coming from God and true contentment is found only in God.
