This summer, we’ve been tracking the story of David, particularly through this odd, in-between part of his life where he was anointed as king but not yet enthroned as king. Much of our lives are lived in these sorts of in-between spaces. This week, we reach the end of our series on the life of David and we leave off in another sort of anti-climax. David is enthroned, but God tells him that David’s great hope—to build a temple—is not for him to do: not now, not ever. What if not just a season of our lives, but our lives as a whole are lived “in-between”? What would that do to what we take to be a “good life”?
