Fall is officially upon us. For most of us, this is the time of year we enjoy the most. Ahh waking before the hustle of life, and enjoying the crisp, cool morning with a cup of tea in hand is my personal fav.

Though David was a man who sought the Lord and heard from God, we know that he is just a man. Like you and I, David was a sinner. If his life seemed perfect, here we learn how imperfect he was.
