Today we are continuing our study of the early years of David’s life in 1 Samuel. What we read about in 1 Samuel are key years in David’s formation as a young man and future leader of the nation of Israel. These stories are also of tremendous importance to us as leaders because many of us, like David, have a leader we are working to faithfully serve.
We pick up the story of David in 1 Samuel 19 where King Saul urges his son and servants to kill David. (This was not good!) You may read 1 Samuel 19 here online, or you can just follow my summary below.
