Why Men Are Sought After

Key Verse

“Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war…the LORD is with him” (1 Samuel 16: 18).

Text — 1 Samuel 16: 15-23


A person who distinguishes himself in a particular art or skill is always sought after, especially if he is a faithful child of God. Hence, Martin Luther King Jr. comments: “If a man is called to be street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music; or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets, so well that all the host of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” David was diligent in the little corner where he laboured as a shepherd boy. He exhibited excellence in all his endeavours.

Dear friend, in contemporary times, men and women are still sought after to fill certain key positions in organizations and governments of nations. The requisite qualities that make people outstanding and therefore sought after include: intelligence, diligence, creativity, integrity, moral uprightness and dedication to duty. Experience is another useful quality. Humbly work under leaders who will mentor you to acquire experience required elsewhere. In Christian ministry, gifted and consecrated youths are also needed for fruitful service. Prepare for the call to serve.


Experience is another useful quality


Exhibit excellence in all your endeavours.

Prayer for today

Prepare me, oh God, for usefulness.
