I Samuel 30:24 For who will hearken unto you in this matter? but as his part is that goeth down to the battle, so shall his part be that tarrieth by the stuff: they shall part alike.
There are some who will go into battle and others that will stay at home helping them. There are some who will be goers and others who will be senders. There should never be the idea that some are better than others.
In this story, David set a precedent for Israel. Those that went to battle would share the spoils of war equally with those that stayed at home protecting the homefront. Those that went would share alike with those that remained.
In the New Testament, we find Paul saying that those that give offerings, prayer, and support would get fruit in their account based on the work that the goer was doing.
We are all in this together. We share and share alike. We aren’t some better than others but all His servants, doing His work, for His glory.
