Whether we're a new follower of Christ or someone like David who has faithfully followed God for years and years, we're still susceptible to sinning. When we react and respond based on our feelings and attitudes (pride, anger, jealousy, hurt) rather than seeking God's direction, the outcome won’t be a good one. So when we stumble and fall into sin (and we all will), the best thing for us to do when we recognize that we've sinned, is to confess our thinking, words, and actions and get our life back on track with God as soon as possible.
