The Goodness of God

psalm 16.png

Sermon Summary - In this stand-alone sermon, we dive into Psalm 16, a well-known song of David, the King of Israel. A man who had everything one could dream of: status, approval, land, kingdom, servants, throne. Yet, he declares to us in this Psalm that only God can satisfy our souls. David was not a perfect King— he was a very broken man— but God was where he turned and God was his source of Joy.
