Inventory of Friendship

Michael Sullivan

What does it mean to be a true friend? Michael Sullivan points us to David and Jonathan for an Old Testament picture of a 'better than perfect' friendship, and ultimately the friend we have in Christ.


Dan Slagle hosts Michael Sullivan following his sermon on "better than perfect" friendship; taking a look at what that was like in King David's life and how that applies to our friendships today.

Series Description

Better Than Perfect

Feeling the pressure to be PERFECT?

We don't blame you. Look at your Facebook feed—what do you see? "Perfection." The perfect family, perfect vacation, perfect dorm, perfect home-cooked meal.

But it's all an illusion. That kind of perfection is hollow and fake.

God's definition of perfection is so much better than all that. You don't have to pretend to be something you're not. He takes us as we are—all our warts and blemishes—and makes us BETTER THAN PERFECT!

So stop chasing "perfect" and pursue God instead. Let Him perfect you moment by defining moment—not just through your victories, but through your failures too!

Join us beginning August 20 as we explore how God was able to use King David—despite all of his amazingly epic failures—ultimately making him better than perfect.
