I Chronicles 21:1 and 2: Satan Tempts us to put our trust in that which we possess. It is his desire that we trust in our own efforts and in all we can accumulate. We are to trust in God alone (Luke 12:13-21).
I Chronicles 21:3: Joab gives David Godly council. Nothing is of more value than solid Godly council (Proverbs 11:14). Joab reminds David that the people are not his; they are the Lord’s people (Exodus 4:22).
