The Shepherd King
The story of King David takes place around 1000 BC. As a shepherd, he enjoyed playing on the harp and taking care of his sheep. But God had a greater plan when he brought down the Philistine army by killing their giant Goliath with a sling and a stone. David was anointed as the second King to rule Israel and he established Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, which remains to date. He reigned for 40 years which is called by many, “The Golden Age” of Israel. David wrote over 70 Psalms of great inspiration, praise, and worship, the most popular all over the world for centuries is Psalm 23, which helped numerous people to find comfort, physical and emotional healing.
His love for God was exemplary so also his repentance when he committed sin. He knew that God will not despise a broken spirit and a broken and contrite heart. No wonder God forgave him and called him ‘a man after my own heart’. As God promised, Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of mankind, was born in the family of David and thus was known as the Son of David.
