Series: King David - God's Servant
Stuart Briscoe
1 Chronicles 28:1-21

The final days of David were devoted to preparations for the building of the Temple. His attention to detail, his personal sacrifice, and his final instructions clearly show that at the end of his days, he could honestly say, "My heart is fixed, O God" (Psalm 57:7).
