Who in the Bible is the greatest example of leadership (apart from Jesus, of course)? Without a doubt: David. When you speak of David in a Biblical context, the name needs no modifier. You don’t have to call him
King David for a Bible reader to know who you are talking about.
His name occurs more than 1,000 times in the Old Testament alone. A curious fact: No one else in the Bible was ever named David. Names in Hebrew mean something, and until this morning, I had never looked at the meaning of David’s name. Nor had I ever thought much about the characteristics of this man that made him such a great leader.
