…the command of David the man of God (Nehemiah 12:24).
One important aspect of worship is the temple musicians and singers who offered thanks to God. The organization of these worshipers was instituted by King David nearly 600 years earlier, so the phrase “according to the command of David” doesn’t surprise me.
But the description “the man of God” does surprise me!
Why not just “King David”? Yet 600 years after his reign David is still known as God’s man!
A mark of a godly leader is one the people still think of as “godly” long after he’s gone.
My prayer—Lord, may my legacy continue to bring You glory long after I have left the scene.
