When No One But The Sheep Are Watching

Jennifer Cole

“...man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7, NKJV

I love reading about David in the Bible -- he did so many things the right way! And it’s super encouraging to see that it wasn’t his stature, good looks, number of Facebook friends or resume that led God to promote him into the role of King of Israel. God looked at his heart and saw that David was faithful to do even the smallest of tasks with excellence.

Before David was king, he was a shepherd boy tending his father’s sheep. His task was to feed, lead and protect them. It wasn’t that glamorous or spiritual. He didn’t receive too many accolades and in fact, his older brother insulted and minimized what he did by calling them his “few sheep.” It was just routine work. It was the bottom of the totem pole. It was his starting point. But he did a good job -- even when no one but the sheep were watching. 

As a side note...it’s cool to see that in his spare time, David worshipped God. He played his “guitar” (harp) and wrote songs to the Lord. We get the benefit of reading some of those songs in Psalms!

As you can see, David’s journey didn’t start in a lofty place -- it started in a pasture tending to sheep. He was the youngest of eight boys, and by the world’s standards was the least likely to be chosen as king. But...God looked at his heart. 

Do you want to get promoted? Launch out in ministry? Start your own business? It starts in your “sheep pasture” -- being faithful in the simple, natural things right where you’re at today. So today -- I encourage you to take a heart check and see if you’re being faithful with your actions, commitments and details -- even when no one but the sheep are watching!

Say This: “Father, help me to inspect my life. Give me the wisdom and discernment I need to assess how I’m doing in taking care of my tasks, details and commitments. I do want to be promoted into all that you have for me in this life, so please help me to become excellent and faithful in natural things. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
