Samuel: The Kingmaker – David The Opportunist

Play Audio

Opportunism is the conscious policy and practice of taking advantage of circumstances – with little regard for principles or with what the consequences are for others.  Opportunistic actions are expedient actions guided primarily by self-interested motives.

Have you ever met someone who seems to know how to take full advantage of every situation – both good and bad?  And have you ever known someone who always seems to rise to the top after the dust settles and who always comes out looking squeaky clean?

Well, there is someone like that in the Bible; his name is David, King of Israel.  Today pastor Dan will begin the first of three sermons about a man most Christians misunderstand.  Today we will dig into the darker side of David, and in so doing we will ask ourselves to consider our own motives in life, and we will make sure to seek out a higher calling than just a life that “works out” for us.
