David – Week 4

David – Week 4

Today, we are in week 4 of our series on the life of David. He was a shepherd, warrior, fugitive, king, father, and a man after God’s own heart. Even in his moments of faithlessness and failure, David found redemption through repentance and God’s forgiveness. Today, we see David the fugitive, and we learn how trouble and suffering can either lead us closer to God, or cause us to take matters in our own hands.
