So David reigned over all Israel and did what was just and right for all his people.
2 Samuel 8:15
King David’s reign was characterized by doing what was “just and right.” David was fair in interpreting the law, administering punishment with mercy, respecting people’s rights, and recognizing people’s duties toward God. Is it any wonder that almost everyone trusted and followed David? Justice should characterize the way you relate to people. Make sure you are fair in the way you treat them.
