King David: Humble Shepherd, Giant Slayer, and Man After God’s Own Heart

King David: Humble Shepherd, Giant Slayer, and Man After God’s Own Heart - we explore two major events in David's life.Episode #18- King David: Humble Shepherd, Giant Slayer, and Man After God’s Own Heart

When God sent the prophet Samuel to appoint one of the sons of Jesse to be the new king of Israel, the young boy David was occupied out in the field, tending to his father’s sheep. His father didn’t even think to call his youngest son in to be considered by Samuel because, surely, one of his older sons was destined for kingship. However, it was David to whom the Lord led Samuel to anoint.

On this episode, we explore two major events in David’s life. First, we see how God can use someone who is willing, though unequipped, to slay a giant. Next, we take a look into David’s descent into sin, its effect on his health and family, and eventual repentance, restoring him to a right relationship with God. Crystal and Kevin then discuss three life lessons that we can apply to our own lives as Christ-followers.

Next week- Be sure to listen in next week as your hosts explore the life of a man who was both a very wise and a very foolish king.
