Advent WK 4B (2017)

(2 Sam 7:1-5, 8b-12, 14a, 16) The late great OT scholar, Walter Brrueggemann, pointed out that David thought of himself as ambitious, powerful, and good, but his life is not meant to be seen as an achiever of things for God. He is meant to be seen as a receiver of things from God. God essentially says that you may think of yourself as building me a house; I will build you a house, a dynasty, “the house of David.”
