David: A man after God’s own heart – Off season

Do you know your purpose in life? If you do, what are doing to fulfill that purpose? Some seasons of life bring great focus and clear direction. Other seasons, we may find ourselves asking, “Why am I stuck here?” Let’s call those types of seasons, an off-season. When we think of King David, we think of a general leading armies to victory or a courageous boy fighting a giant. Surely one anointed to be King had a great and high purpose. But what forged the boy into the King? A season as a shepherd. David already had his calling, but first, he had some off season work to do.
