  • Mary Atkinson

    The emphasis is on Israel's unity under David.Davids mighty men were the 1st groups to go out on duty in the service of the king.
    The same way we need to be today we need to have unity serving God!Because divided we are falling so quickly!God's saints are his mighty men that need to go before the unsaved to show them a better way....
