Becoming a Mighty Man of Valor

King David was one of the greatest leaders of the ancient world. In building his leadership team, he pursued and recruited a collection of "Mighty Men" who came alongside of him in life and battle; 1 Chronicles 11 and 12 details the characteristics of these mighty men of valor.

Take a look at these characteristics of a mighty man of valor. Are you becoming a mighty man? Are you surrounding yourself with mighty men?

Characteristics of a Mighty Man of Valor from 1 Chronicles 11

  • Strong and Loyal Supporters (v. 10)
  • Obedient to God's Word (v. 10)
  • Courageous in Battle (v. 11)
  • Willing to Take a Stand (v. 14)
  • Brave Servants of the King (v. 18)
  • Fight in the Lord's Strength (v. 20)

1 Chronicles 11 highlights a few of these mighty men a little more closely. Take a look at these profiles and consider what mighty deeds and noble characteristics you would like to be remembered for.

  2. Three Mighty Men - Three men of valor stormed the gates of Bethlehem for a drink of water to give to the King.
