A study on the Life of David and Making Godly decisions

Theme Verse:

Make Your ways known to me, Lord; teach me Your paths. 5 Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; I wait for You all day long. Psalm 25:4-5

Theme Paragraph:

We are all on a journey, often finding ourselves standing at the convergence of truth and its imitation. These convergent moments have the power to alter our lives and impact God’s Kingdom for eternity. But, how do we decide in which direction to move? Studying the journey of David, students will be challenged to apply godly discernment by trusting God completely, recognize the difference between God’s truth and men’s advice, realize the impact of their decisions and surround themselves with people who reinforce the need for godly wisdom. Join us on the journey.
