The King's Affair
Passage: 2 Samuel 11:1–12:31
While Israel continued their battle against the Ammonites, David remained at home in Jerusalem. A quiet early evening stroll turned in to a illicit affair and entangled God's anointed king in a sinful mess. David's attempts to cover up his sin increased his guilt. And then God sent a message to expose his sin and explain the consequences he would endure. As difficult as the future for David would be, he had to hope that God alone would bring resolution to the mess he had created.
