Today's reading: 2 Samuel 12:15-31
There are always consequences when we sin. And in today's passage, David experiences that first-hand. With regard to this instance, the consequences are particularly painful and distressing. But the pain and distress of the sickness and death of his first son with Bathsheba, humbles David and brings him to a state of complete repentance. While this account is sad and difficult to read, it delivers a needed reminding message of the damaging consequences of our sinful choices--not only to us personally, but to those around us, who more often than not are the people dearest to us.
How has God used a consequence(s) to move your heart to repentance? Tami
