What is a "man after God' own heart"?

What will he look like, how will he live his life?

In the Book of Acts we read:

"After removing Saul, he made David their king. He testified concerning him: 'I have found David son of Jesse a man after My own heart; he will do everything I want him to do."

But David committed adultery, murder; David was a man of war.What was there in David that God would call him "a man after My own heart?"

David loved The Word ---"O how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day." Psalm 119:97

David loved to pray --- "I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications." Psalm 116:1

David loved to praise --- "Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care." Psalm 95:1-7
 
But, most importantly to God, David "will do everything I want him to do."

Will we be a David, or will we be a Saul?
