    Recently, I preached about David, the shepherd boy, who took down Goliath, the Philistine giant, and became King of Israel. The Bible says David was after God’s own heart and was by him.

    God gave David blessing after blessing. He gave him many wives and children and fought many battles for him.

  • Only in America is craziness in vogue during March
