Last chapter I concluded that, when you love god, it’s important to have something to do. David gets something urgent to do when he returns to the philistine town he’s been living in and finds the Amelakites have taken everyone and everything they left behind.
He turns to God, first time in three chapters. He finds a priest and consults, and gets his courage in god back.
He gets back all he has lost. He shares the spoils of the raid as one who has been given them by God, not selfishly.
He re-contacts his old Israelite friends, sending them a gift of “spoils from their enemy”.
David is back!
I’m reminded and I pray to God again today: therefore, go, do stuff!
