Life of David

December 31, 2018


Toward the end of 2018 we went through 1 Samuel chapter 16 and 17, where we were introduced a young shepherd boy named David. This boy, famously and greatly against the odds, defeated the fierce giant Goliath. Often it is suggested to “go and be like David” out of these texts. Aside from not fitting with the actual story that we ought to place ourselves in David’s shoes, is it congruous with David’s life that he was always the triumphant and victorious one? Should our life always look like David’s triumph against Goliath? This series leaps out of the triumph of 1 Samuel 17 and considers broader experiences of David’s life though the Psalms. We’ll look at:

  • Betrayal and rebellion, Psalm 3, Jan 13th.
  • Leading through uncertainty, Psalm 27, Jan 20th.
  • Danger and escape, Psalm 34, Jan 27th.
  • Personal sin and failure, Psalm 51, Feb 3rd.
