1Samuel 30: 21-25
On the path of leadership, it must be known and understood that strength and responsibility should not be mistaken for one another. Having strength is one thing and having a willing heart is another . . . A man who has both is blessed!
This is where equity comes in: every man must be given work to do according to his strength.
This is where equality comes in: every man is seen as responsible based on the faithfulness in diligently doing the work given/assigned to him.
David knew this and would not let the “strong” have dominion over the “weak”. Even God gives us work to do according to our faith in HIM (i.e. stature). But in the end, what HE delights to see is that the Status and Stature are growing together inseparably.
