BUT... He is out in the fields (1 Samuel 16:11)
“There is still the youngest,” Jesse replied.
he’s out in the fields watching the sheep and goats.”
1 Sam 16:11
This verse just makes me smile because I am the youngest child in my family. God was looking for a new king and He sent Samuel to the family of Jesse to find him. The father showed him all of the sons and none were the one God was looking for. When he asked is this all of your sons the above verse was the reply. When Samuel found David in the field God assured him he was the one! Imagine that - a shepherd keeping watch over his flocks by night.
