Today's reading: 2 Samuel 24:10-17
Our sinful choices (actions, words, thoughts) impede our relationship with God. So in order to have and maintain a full and vibrant relationship with God, seeking forgiveness needs to be a regular course of action for each of us.
David understood the need to keep a short account with God. So as soon as his feels convicted about his actions in numbering the people, he seeks God to candidly and openly confess his sin and ask for forgiveness. It's an example we would all be wise to follow.
Is it your practice to keep a short account with God when it comes to asking for forgiveness? Why is this important? How does talking candidly and opening with God about your sinful choices help strengthen your relationship with Him? Tami
