Shepherd, giant killer, soldier, king, man after God’s own heart, adulterer and murderer, this is David. Pastor Evan and Pastor Greg told the story of David’s sin. I retold the story in the King’s crown.
David loved God but lost his way, like any of us. But he sinned in a very kingly way, a real whopper. Taking another man’s wife and when he couldn’t cover it up he put the man in harm’s way and the man died. Nathan, the prophet, confronted David in a searing way that cut into David’s heart, and he repented. Though David prayed with tears and grief the baby born of the infidelity died.
But after David married Bethsheba they had another baby. This child became the famous and wise, King Solomon. Read the story for yourself in 2 Samuel 11-12.
