Twice David is called “A man after God’s own heart.” But this divine comparison did not stop David from some giant screw ups: infidelity, murder, and most likely never in the running for husband or father of the year.

David lived from his everything and typically ran full speed to God. And when he didn’t, he always ended up returning to God.
That’s our choice, every single day: Live wholeheartedly, and turn back when we don’t.
