I agree...very hard to even consider this one.
I'm reading a book by Chuck Swindoll about David...wow, it is so cool to really study in-depth a man who was called, "a man after God's own heart."
Obviously, David had many pitfalls...which we should try to learn from and avoid. I hope I don't ever commit the sin of adultery.
Anyway, what's nice is that God calls me to do His will for _my_ life. I can only try to measure up to Jesus in _character_, not so much as what I consider earthly "accomplishments". I mean, David was lived in a cave for 10+ years (when fleeing King Saul), so I doubt he was feeling like he was getting much done for God during that down time in his life. I'm just called to obey. Hopefully, when I stand before the Lord someday he will look at me and say, "Well done, my good and faithful servant"...no matter what menial tasks (from the human perspective) He asks me to do.
Sometimes that's the hard part. Trying to do too much, too soon. I see these great men (and women) in the Bible and think, "yeah, I should be like that!"...and in many ways we should!! But then I get overanxious and run in _front_ of God, instead of waiting patiently for His direction.
But that's just me. We should ALL be inspired by the Word of God and the people in Scripture are certainly a HUGE part of the Word.
