We continue a summer series lifting up characters from the Old Testament. Some were heroes of the faith, some were villains, all of them have things to teach us about living our lives in the Will of God. I hope you are inspired anew and perhaps warned away from some of humanities most famous failings. This week we continue with the life of David. He has finally become King of Israel, set up his capital in Jerusalem – including bring the Ark of the Covenant there. Now he proposes to build a temple for the Ark, but God has something different in mind and wonderful for us as well – an eternal kingdom ruled by a son of David – Christ our Lord!
