David is not a Biblical hero because he slays Goliath. If he is your hero for that you must also include Uriah, Bathsheba, Absolom and the treatment of Saul's descendants into the equation. No, David is not a hero in the standard sense of the word. He is a model though of sticking in–literally hanging in with God through thick and thin–that is the hero part of David. He responds to God. Sometimes he continues digging a hole for himself, but then he comes around. May we come around and stick in there in the same way.
