David The Shepherd Boy

How could David – the boy who tended sheep & tore a lion apart

Be considered a man after God’s own heart?

Anointed to be king, & with (God’s) strength, slew Goliath the Philistine

Still, he was a very blemished human being.

He gave into temptation & took the census of Israel (1 Chron 21:1)

He should have been condemned to Hell!

Slept with Bathsheba, & killed Uriah

Didn’t he deserve to become a pariah?

David, even with his many flaws

Delighted in & meditated on God’s law (Psalm 119:47-48)

He had faith & repented of all the mistakes

Sinfulness truly made his heart ache (Psalm 51)

Don’t forget, the king was always filled with gratitude (Psalm 9:1, 100:1, 126:6-7, 138:1)

The Lord must’ve been pleased with his overall aptitude

Even though he made decisions that weren’t so smart

David The Shepherd Boy, was still a man after God’s own heart.
