I Chronicles 14:2 And David perceived that the LORD had confirmed him king over Israel, for his kingdom was lifted up on high, because of his people Israel. 3 And David took more wives at Jerusalem: and David begat more sons and daughters.
I noticed as I read this passage how David began to take more wives and have more children. He had been a hard and toughened warrior. Now God was giving him peace. His kingdom was strong and his position sure so he started doing the logical thing. He got comfortable. He got more wives and kids. He was living the good life.
I know that one of the dangerous I experience is getting comfortable. I realize that I have fought lots of battles. I have been out in war for the Lord. I want to enjoy the comforts of what He has done. I want to make my family comfortable.
That, for me, can be just a step away from getting lazy. Not worrying about my spiritual growth. It can be for me the next step towards not caring like I should. God help me to love you and honor you in every stage of my life and ministry. Help me to honor you even when I could begin to think of myself s successful.
