Your study of King David’s childhood is so instructive for us today. Thank you. Is it possible to know your original sources/references? I am writing about David’s mother, and of course will cite you as my primary reference, but I would also like to read original sources in English if possible. Thanks so much for your help. Reply

When studying King David, the overwhelming feeling and realisation this was a beloved King of HaShem brought me to a feeling of deep humility. King David is a cherished, blessed individual whom pours out his heart to HaShem and is listened too with compassion and caring from Hashem.

King David teaches us to remain steadfast in our love for Hashem. Here is where I learnt the love of HaShem and to realise that many sufferings can be our own doing out of folly and or, a necessary for personal development.

Families, we bring our children into this world out of tremendous blessings, yet, out of various factors our children (G-d forbid) can be our greatest challenge from their behaviours. All their ways are known and HaShem feels the same as we do when we feel challenged in regards to the love of our children.

Without King David's teaching, how can we come to know and love Hashem, other than the teaching of the Rebbe'im?
