    This verse tells me that if Christians follow Davids example of how he behaved by using wisdom in all of his actions and his decisions then we can be bless in the same way as we folliw David's pattern in using wisdom in all of our ways, acts, and deeds. just as God was with David and blessed him, He will bless us also.
