This episode was a fun one for Dave and Burnadette to record together. King David is a treasure house of insight into what it means to follow the Lord God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength. He lived his life feeling free to embrace God through every weakness, triumph, and test. He teaches us to hold nothing back in our pursuit of God.
David’s story occurs during the time of Israel’s “united Kingdom.” Before an eventual split in the Kingdom of Israel, there are three kings who care for God’s people. Saul is the “people’s king” but has NO HEART for God. David is “God’s King” and though imperfect in many ways, exhibits a WHOLE HEART for God. His son Solomon embraces things in life that ensure his HALF HEART God experience, and though blessed beyond imagination, finishes his life in a pitiful pool of idolatry.
