When I saw this story the first thing that I thought of was the phrase "A man after my own heart" I love stories like this.

A feel good story. Man I wish we could help this guy.

*** Then I wondered what is the origin of that phrase?

'A man after my own heart'?

The term originates from the Bible (King James Version):


Samuel 13:14:


But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the LORD hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the LORD commanded thee.


Acts 13:22:


And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill all my will.
