In this last chapter of King David's story, he leaves some bewildering last words that reflect the ups and downs of his entire life. He is known for great heroism and epic failures. He is known as "a man after God's own heart".
God was looking for someone to carry out his wishes, and despite David's many flaws, he always obeyed in the end. The story of King David gives us hope. God is always faithful - even when we're not.
