Lessons on Living from David


David was hit with many heartbreaking experiences. His son rebelled against him. His people failed to support him. His trusted advisor joined the enemy. His general disobeyed him . . . but he had a responsibility. He was king and did not have the luxury to wallow in self-pity. Life went on and so did David.


Through it all, David experienced the amazing faithfulness of God. When he sinned he suffered the consequences, but God still loved him. When he was on the run from his enemies, God delivered him. When he grieved the deaths of his children, God sustained him. Whether he lived as a humble shepherd or conquering king, David proved that God’s goodness endured and enabled him to go on.


David was a man’s man. He fought, loved and lived life to the fullest. Throughout this study you’ll be reminded that God is merciful to those who fear Him—to those who, like David, are people after His own heart.
