For this reason, there are lessons we each can learn from David’s remarkable life with God, whether male or female, young or old. Join us for "The Making of a Man" as we examine eight of the integral character traits that made this “man after God’s own heart” a real person who is deeply relatable to each of our lives today.

Focus on the blessings you have been given instead of complaining about those you don’t have.
