Lord, make me a warrior for you. I read in 2 Samuel about how Saul and Jonathan were killed in battle…and then David composed a song which honored both of them.
I want to be a warrior like David who lived in submission before Saul. I know that this is a most difficult task. David was anointed king. But still chose to honor the reigning king, for Saul was also anointed by the Lord.
But I want to fight. I don’t want to die without honor. I don’t want to be bland or sterile, but I want to run, to achieve, to overcome and lead others past the mediocrity that has our culture locked into hopeless existence.
With infinite complacency people went to and fro over the earth about their little affairs, serene in the assurance of their dominion over this small, spinning fragment of solar driftwood which, by chance or design, man has inherited out of the dark mystery of Time and Space.
Is it me?
Is it you?
Is it us?
