You are the man! –2 samuel 12:7
Read the whole passage in 2 Samuel 11:1-12:14
It started with a glance, a stray eye, a chance look. The spark grew and the flame fanned. David, known as the man after God’s heart, took what was not his and destroyed what could not be fixed. If there was a person who understood God’s heart, who knew God’s will , who believed in God’s law, it was David. But no amount of understanding or faith, no amount of courage or strenght, will, or discipline, could root out the blackness that hid in his human heart. Even the best of humanity lay dark and broken at the core. A remnant of goodness, a glimplse of godlike beauty remains, but it is tainted and dirties by sin. Such stains can only dissolve with God-sized solutions and God-designed remeies. We can only hope for God’s grace and beg for his mercy. We cannot erase our wrongs or wipe out their effects on others. We must simple trust and hope in God for forgiveness.
Talk with God
I too have failed. Failed to keep your laws, failed to love my neighbor, to keep pure my mind, to give you my strenght. Forgive my failure.
Live it. How will you live more second today?
Tell it. How will you share what you have learned?
