David picked up five smooth stones before meeting with Goliath. Countless teachings amplify the drama of that fateful day, yet it is not necessarily his greatest accomplishment. While it stands out clearly among the host of significant conquests,one victory 'does not a dynasty create'. David lived a life filled with wisdom as well as acts of courage.
David's wisdom is the foundation of this book, particularly five gems of exceptional truth and understanding. Extracted from the sentiment of his own heartache and trials are true riches. These are treasures so profound that they established the golden age of Israel, revered and celebrated to this day. David defines for us a model of leadership that goes far beyond the classic posturing found in contemporary business literature.
As economic systems reel under the force of turbulent times and uncertain financial storms, there has never been a greater need of true leadership. Governments and corporations alike have begun to feel that need. The example of David holds a key. His life reveals an insight into the world around us, along with people in it, that is a sure recipe for genuine influence.
I have been reading your book for the past 2 weeks during my devotional time… and I’m LOVING IT!! I have sat stunned and amazed at the truth you present; such biblical, wise and solid truth. Thank you for this gift.
