If modern-day judges were asked to select the Old Testament character who best fit the title, Man After God's Own Heart, David would most likely not make the short list.
And yet God Himself bestowed that title upon a former shepherd boy who grew up to be a king and a warrior, not to mention a murderer and adulterer. In this message, Dr. Stanley addresses this paradox and explains the characteristics that made David a man after God's own heart. Take comfort in his story—you don't have to be perfect to pursue God wholeheartedly.
