Lessons from the Life of David

God says of King David, “I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will” (Acts 13:22, ESV).  When the Psalmist summarizes David’s life, he writes:

And David shepherded them with integrity of heart;
with skillful hands he led them.
(Psalm 78:72, NIV)

This Sunday, November 17, I will be sharing the next to last message in the current series, “Lessons from the Life of David.”  The last message in the series will be on Sunday, November 24.  I am confident that the Lord intends to teach us from his Word how to be leaders of character and competence – integrity and skill – all for His glory.  I look forward to seeing you in worship this Sunday!
