The Eighth Day Son

1 Sam. 16:11 And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither. 12 And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.   
Jesse marches seven sons before Samuel and none of them are chosen. It is as if each day of the week were displayed but none would do. But the eighth son, who represents the first day after all days, the day of Resurrection, the Lord's Day, is the son after God's own heart. He is the chosen.
