Scripture: Acts 13:36-39
Acts 13:36-39 says, “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and saw corruption; but He whom God raised up saw no corruption. Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.” David served his own generation by the will of God. David had an individual call. But that individual call specifically served a generation. David became an example to not only his generation but to all the generations that followed. Everything that David accomplished in his generation became a platform for the next one. David sought God and got the architectural and operational plans for the temple. He asked God for the anointing and God gave it plus the resources to build the sanctuary. And David presented all that to Solomon for the actual building of it. So David accumulated everything that made the building of the temple possible and he passed it on to the next generation. The majority of what David did, he did for the generation following him. Can we give ourselves to God like that? Can we use our faith to become a platform, a foundation, a road that others can travel on? David did and when we have that attitude, it does please God.
