Creating a Legacy of Moral Purity

At the height of his success, King David fell in the midst of battle. But his lost battle wasn’t against the lion, the bear, the giant, or the Philistines. David lost the battle against himself. Before we examine the tragic episode in David’s life that would forever mar his legacy, it’s important that we understand that this is not simply an objective autopsy of one man’s failure.
