  • HE HAD HIS OWN FOLLOWERS, BUT HEWAS SMART ENOUGH TO REALIZE AND
  • 00:11:10.691 --> 00:11:11.458
  • WAS SMART ENOUGH TO REALIZE ANDTHE HUMILITY TO REALIZE, THAT HE
  • 00:11:11.458 --> 00:11:16.630
  • THE HUMILITY TO REALIZE, THAT HEHIMSELF WAS NOT THE WAY.

  • DAVID, WHO WAS ANOINTED KING.HOW DID HE DO THAT?
  • 00:11:43.990 --> 00:11:45.859
  • HOW DID HE DO THAT?BECAUSE THERE WAS A LEVEL OF
  • 00:11:45.859 --> 00:11:46.660
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS A LEVEL OFHUMILITY WITHIN HIM WHERE HE
  • 00:11:46.660 --> 00:11:47.260
