It is easy to exaggerate David; he was (and is) a charismatic figure, who very quickly looms larger than life in the eyes of his admirers. Michelangelo sculpted in marble what most Christians have carved in their imaginations, a flawless David. But the biblical text does not give us a flawless David. It is absolutely essential that we acquire a sense of our common God-created, Jesus-saved, and Spirit-blessed selves that is unedited, unabridged, and unblinking. These final episodes in the David story ensures we get the whole story - of him and of us.

The lock-down enforced a nation-wide, in fact, a global fast of consumerism and has left us with a more acute sense of the things we need and desire. It seems that we can actually get by with a lot less and yet somehow we exist with a communal, chronic dissatisfaction. Whether it be material objects, a partner, a job or even social and political aspirations, we are constantly encouraged to aim for more.
