Would you start a new business and hire criminals, the malcontent, people who had gone bankrupt, thieves and people who were bitter in their soul? King David did (1 Samuel 22:2) This motley crew could have easily become a marauding band of thugs and outlaws; but instead they became a "national guard" for local farmers and ranchers against a well organized army. In fact they became the formidable warriors that were feared and their war tactics are still studied today in different countries military "War Colleges". These vagabonds worked as a team, watched each others back, and moved as one unit, one mind accomplishing feats they never thought imaginable! They responded to someone looking at them with the eyes of GOD; believing that their hardships could make them better and seeing who they were going to be, not who they had been. GOD sees who HE made in you and the plans HE has for you! So you think THAT AIN'T NONE OF YOUR "BUNCH", OR IS IT? Besides where do you think the Army's saying "BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE" came from?
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
