Leadership Lessons from the Life of David
There is no one in the Old Testament who provides a greater picture of the ministry of Jesus, or the life of a dedicated believer than King David. Known as "the man after God's own heart," David excelled both as a lovesick gazer on God's beauty and as a wise leader who brought his nation into victory and blessing both in seasons of war and times of peace. What was it that motivated God to choose David as king? How did God shape David for leadership and establish him on the throne? As we often find, the Lord's ways are not the ways we would choose.
David's preparation for kingship was found in serving a demonized king who sought to kill him. His servant leadership was further cultivated in the desert, where he found himself leading an army of discontented men who were distressed and in debt. Through adverse circumstances and the challenges of personal weakness, in rejection and favor, the Lord cultivated a leader through whom He could truly rule.
The wisdom of David's life contained in these sixteen messages will give vision, clarity, and strength to your personal journey.
