Walk the streets of Jerusalem today and ask anybody, “Who was Israel’s greatest king?” and most likely they will answer, “David, the man after God’s own heart.”
Not surprisingly, the King David Jerusalem Hotel is one of the “Leading Hotels in the World” and is the universal choice of elite travelers who visit the holy city from all corners of the globe. Guests enjoy modern luxury along with the splendor of a bygone era.Naming the hotel after King David makes perfect sense; however, naming it after King Saul would have been a poor marketing decision.
Saul was a man after his own heart and sought sorcery for counsel. Though not morally perfect, David never once fell into idolatry. Is your heart more like Saul’s or David’s?
