Who Is It?

1 Samuel 17:55, “Now when Saul saw David going out against the Philistine, he said to Abner the commander of the army, ‘Abner, whose son is this young man?’ And Abner said, ‘By your life, O king, I do not know.'”

New American Standard Bible

Wait a minute. Saul didn’t recognize David? We read how Saul sent messengers to Jesse to send David to him, 1 Samuel 16:14-23.

David played and sang whenever Saul was tormented. It said, “Saul loved him greatly, and he became his armor-bearer.” 1 Samuel 16:24. Yet, when he left to face Goliath, Saul didn’t know who he was?

This is my “Why!”

I’m working through homework from a Dean Graziosi class that I took on January 4th. One exercise is to determine your “Why?”

“Why do I blog?”

One reason I discovered was that I believe everyone is important. Everyone deserves a place to dream and create. Everyone deserves to thrive – even while unemployed or living under the poverty level.

Been there. Done that. Got the tee-shirt! 🙂

Everyone matters. Saul should have recognized the youth who played and sang while he was depressed. He should have recognized his armor-bearer.

Dear Jesus,

Please don’t let me overlook anyone. Help me to remember names and their story. And give me the words to help others thrive regardless of their income, both here and at frugalfish.org.
