1 Samuel 22.2
Not only that, but all who were down on their luck came around - losers and vagrants and misfits of all sorts. David became their leader. There were about four hundred in all.
what an encouragement, lord! in your kingdom there are no losers, no vagrants, no misfits of whatever sort, nobody down on their luck - everyone gets to come around, everyone gets to have purpose, be significant, live a life of meaning, becomes a powerful force to be reckoned with - and all this happens in your body, the family of believers that you put together for this reason. what sovereignty and greatness of thought you have, lord, really marvellous for you to come up with such an idea. thank you that your redemptive plan can never be thwarted by anything or anyone, you always have the final word, you always are in perfect control and the destiny you have for each and every one of us is always always good!
