—1 Chronicles 22:14-19
by: Angie Osborn.
In this situation, David was an example of someone who works in the background and may receive little or no credit for his or her contribution. David would not build the Temple, but he would make all of the preparations behind the scenes. He also used his influence to instruct the people to assist his son in the work. Without those details being taken care of, Solomon would have had a very hard time getting the job done. Sometimes, we are called to work in the background. Others may not see our contributions, but they are important too. Like David, we may not see the finished product, but we can rejoice knowing we played a part in God’s plan!
