Extracts from last weekends Bible Study

Last Saturday, Alan briefly shared on the Universality of Sin. It affects everyone. Even David, considered to be a 'man after God's own heart'. Yet he at a point
  • lacked discipline - 2Sa 11:1 And it came to pass, at the return of the year, at the time when kings go out to battle, that David sent Joab,
  • committed adultery - 2Sa 11:2-4
  • committed murder - 2Sa 11:15-17
  • tried to cover it up - 2Sa 11:15-17
But God is merciful in his forgiveness in that once David realized his wrong, he repented of it.

There were consequences though, as the blood of Uriah was on his hands and thus the first child from this relationship died.
