7 When David Put God First from Adventist Stewardship Ministries on Vimeo.
13 February – When David Put God First
David didn’t always put God rst. His adultery with Bathsheba and her husband’s killing were clear examples of sins David committed when he put himself rst. But eventually, David took responsibility for his sins and repented. By the end of his life, he could not accept that his house looked better than the house of God. He vowed to do everything he could, so God’s house would be better than his palace.
