The Story Ch 18: Daniel in Exile

The Story Ch 17: The Kingdoms’ Fall

The Story Ch 11: From Shepherd to King

David’s life teaches us many valuable lessons. First, God looks at our heart while people look at our external appearance. Second, to overcome problems, we should focus not on the problem or ourselves, but on God.
