    As a leader, David was outstanding. God called him a man after His own heart (1 Samuel 13:14) who would be the ruler. As king, it is interesting to note how God described him at various times. For example, in 2 Samuel 3:18, He called him “My servant David.” In 2 Samuel 7:5, he again called him His servant. These terms are repeated in 1 Chronicles 17:4 and 1 Chronicles 17:7. When David turned to God in confession, he described himself as a servant. In each of the above references the term “servant” is from the same Hebrew word “ebed.” As a revered king, no one would have raised any eyebrows if a nobler title was ascribed to David. After all, he had been adjudged by God as a man after his heart. Yet, he is called a servant. His leadership was about servanthood.

Job certainly did not take his responsibilities lightly before God. He always led in ensuring that he and his family were right before God. He was blameless, upright, feared God and turned from evil. One cannot but pay attention to the appellation God used when talking about Job. “And the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My Servant Job?” (Job 1:8 and 2:3). The label…

    Solomon had learned to respect and fear Yahweh from David’s first attempt to transport the Ark. Along the way, Solomon sacrificed “so many sheep and oxen that they could not be counted or numbered” (1 Kings 8.5). This verse indicates that Solomon was wary not to anger Yahweh as David had. Solomon’s performance obviously pleased Yahweh, as the transfer occurred without going amiss. Although Solomon had appeased Yahweh for the time being, Yahweh wanted to imbue in Solomon the same fear he had…
