1 Samuel 16 – The Singing Shepherd

1 Samuel 16 – The Singing Shepherd

The “Harp Twins,” Camille and Kennerly Kitt, are known for playing calming renditions of classic-rock songs on their instruments. They have hit it big with their music, garnering over ten million hits on You Tube.  Even more impressive, the twins have performed for both President Obama and former President George W. Bush. Their phenomenal popularity is attributed to the fact that their music is so soothing and relaxing.

In today’s text, we are going to be introduced to another harp player, David-“the singing shepherd.” His music was so soothing that it touched the realm of the spiritual and chased away distressing spirits.  As we will see, the key to David’s effectiveness as a musician was that the Spirit of the Lord had come upon him. As we study today’s text, we should be impressed with the importance of worshiping the Lord in the Spirit.
