We continue our series, Reality Check about the crazy and drama-filled life of David. We pick up the story in 2 Samuel 6 where David is now the King of Israel. He wants to welcome God into his reign. But instead of doing it the right way, he takes a shortcut with deadly consequences. As we unpack this passage, we are going to find there are no shortcuts with God.
