Have you ever wished you had a little bit more power — or influence — or control? Whether you dream about ruling the world or just wish you could get a little respect once in a while, the desire to be in charge is something we’ve all experienced. But in this 4-week series, Royals, we’ll hear about a few kings from the Bible whose stories show us power isn’t always easy to yield. Through their failures and successes, we’ll discover that when you make mistakes, God can help make things right; when you think you know best, be humble instead; when you’re not sure who to listen to, ask God for guidance; and when obedience is difficult, stay close to Jesus.
Everyone makes mistakes! There's not a day that goes by when we don't mess up somehow. Sometimes our mistakes are just accidents we quickly forget about, but other times our mistakes are choices we wish, more than anything, we could take back. They're the kind of choices that come with big consequences for ourselves and for others. There's this guy David in the Bible who can relate. God chose him to be king of an entire nation because of his good heart, but all that power went to David's head. He used his position to do horrible things, and those choices had devastating consequences. You may not be a king, and you may not have messed up as much as David did, but you probably know what it's like to feel guilty and ashamed of things you've done. But there's good news: just like David eventually discovered, when you make mistakes, God can help make things right.
