King Saul was anointed by a prophet, chosen by God to be king, and deliberately sinned. King David was also anointed by a prophet, chosen by God to be king, and deliberately sinned. So alike, yet one was called a man after God’s own heart and the other, a regretful decision. Why did God forgive David but ultimately reject Saul as king? In this message, Dr. Stanley illuminates the key difference between the two kings.
