We can learn a lot from the life of David. He was a man after God's own heart (1 Samuel 13:13-14; Acts 13:22)! We are first introduced to David after Saul, at the insistence of the people, was made...
A lesson we can learn from King David is that a Christian will not--cannot--be perfect! It is impossible to live a sinless life. That is why we need our own personal savior--Jesus Christ! Who died for one and all; our only responsibility is to accept Jesus! The lesson learned from the life of David is--yes he made mistakes. But he was not "stiff necked!" What a wonderful Biblical phrase! "Whoever remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed--without remedy." (Proverbs 29:1) NIV David continually turned to God. Today, we might describe his actions as "being humbled at the cross." Perhaps he had an inkling of that imagery. Here is what David said in Psalms. "I confess my iniquity; I am sorry for my sin." (Psalm 38:18) ESV Even though we may stumble... At times life may seem exasperatingly difficult. Yet we can always take it to the Lord in prayer. David was perhaps the premier merely human Biblical example of being "humbled at the cross." A most valuable lesson to learn from his life story!
