Yesterday, we read the stories of David's Mighty Men in our From Garden to City reading plan. It's one of my favorite sections of Scripture. These men were incredibly gifted, yet they were completely loyal to David. They killed 800 men with a spear, and defended a lentil field against the Philistines, and broke through enemy lines to bring a glass of water back to David, and chased a lion into a pit on a snowy day and killed it. Each one was a legend. But their mention in Scripture is boiled down to just a few verses.
As I was reading it yesterday, it occurred to be that the lives of most of these mighty men have been boiled down to one moment. One action. One event.
What if our lives were encapsulated by one moment? What would it be? What if that moment were to happen today?
Live as though the one moment of your life could happen at any moment.
