Chansonette (1 Samuel 18:1-8)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “chansonette.”Have you ever gotten the song stuck in your head?  I know that whenever someone mentions a song like YMCA, I will be singing it over and over again to myself for who knows how long.  As we see in today’s passage, the boy David did some pretty incredible things.  And, when he came home the people were singing songs and chansonettes about him.

“The women sang as they played, and said, "Saul has slain his thousands, And David his ten thousands."
~1 Sam 18:7

My question is: if someone were to ask what song they most associated with you, what do you think it would be?  As human beings, we all have personas and reputations.  The stuff that you do on a daily basis accumulates and gives people an idea of who you are.  As David moved through his life we see that he became closer to God.  My prayer is that you make decisions that help others sing both good songs about you, and praise God for having you in their lives.

Praying for you,
