The Life of David

David is described in Scripture as “a man after God’s own heart.” Not only is he described so strongly, but there is also more written about Him than almost anyone else in the Bible. David rose from humble beginnings to become the most powerful man of his time. However, David’s life is not perfect: He had victories, but he also had his fair share of defeat. David’s life was not flawless, but there is so much to learn from him. In the next six weeks, you’ll be taken on the “roller coaster” that is David’s life. As a young man, David was chosen by God to be the future King and leader of Israel. God was clearly preparing David for future greatness. Unfortunately, David’s life doesn’t always give us a good picture of obedience. Although God clearly prepared him for greatness, there are times when David’s choices were wrong. Still, David continued to return to a heart of humility before God. Even through his mistakes, David’s humility was what kept him close to the heart of God.
