The King's Faithfulness
Passage: 2 Samuel 8:1–10:19
David's reign over Israel has begun, marked by a promise from God that his kingdom will never perish. The early days of David's reign are a demonstration of God's determination to keep this promise as David brings order and justice to the nation. God's faithfulness to his promise deeply impacts David who seeks to demonstrate the same kind of faithfulness throughout his kingdom. For those who will receive him, the result is an experience of overwhelming kindness. But for those who oppose him, the result is an experience of unimaginable loss.
