Lessons From the Lives of Saul and David

The first two kings of Israel, Saul and David, were very different in their orientation to the LORD.  Saul did not turn out to be the kind of leader that God wanted for an obvious reason — his obedience was incomplete.  David, on the other hand, was declared to be a man after God’s own heart.  This study of the lives of Saul and David will teach some powerful spiritual lessons.  There are eighteen (18) lessons in this series.
