Are you enjoying reading about David? He’s a favorite! Today, we’ve got: 1 Chronicles 20:1, 2 Samuel 11, 2 Samuel 12:1-14, Psalm 51, 2 Samuel 12:15-25, 2 Samuel 5:14-16, 1 Chronicles 14:3-7, and 1 Chronicles 3:5-9.
David made some serious mistakes, but he takes them straight to the Lord, asks for forgiveness. Though it was a sin against God, he wronged Uriah and Bathsheba as well. God is able to wash us clean like David asks Him to in Psalm 51.
“Generous in love—God, give grace!
Huge in mercy—wipe out my bad record.
Scrub away my guilt,
soak out my sins in your laundry.
I know how bad I’ve been;
my sins are staring me down” (Psalm 51:1-3 MSG)
I love Psalm 51, but read in this context of these events it is even more meaningful. ❤
