READ 2 Samuel 5:1-5
Kings and shepherds seem like exact opposites. Kings sit on thrones. They wear expensive clothes and talk to important people. Shepherds, on the other hand, stand on the hillsides. They wear clothes that can get dirty and talk mostly to sheep. David was both. He was a shepherd that God chose to be king. A shepherd would probably make an excellent king since shepherds have to be humble and they probably care more about people than about power.
Can you guess who else is a shepherd-king? If you guessed Jesus, you’re exactly right. Jesus is the Good Shepherd. He knows all of us; a shepherd knows his sheep, and he was willing to die so we can live. Jesus is also the King of kings. He beat the powers of sin and death. Now, he sits on his throne, ruling over all of creation.
Spend time outside watching the clouds. After Jesus died and came back to life, He returned to heaven by going up into the clouds. The Bible tells us He will return, coming out of the clouds. Spend time imagining what Jesus’ return will look like and pray for Him to come soon.
