2 Samuel 12:1-25

Read 2 Samuel 12:1-25 – “You hypocrite, first take the log or out of your own eye,  then your will see clearly to take the speck out of your brothers eye.” Luke 6:42.  The Lord used a parable to address David’s sin. In it David saw the offense clearly,  but when Nathan explained he was the man(12:7), then David understood his sin and confessed. In judgment, the Lord took the life of David’s son.   While the child was sick, David fasted and prayed his heart out, and when he died,  David washed, dressed, worshiped the Lord,  then ate. The servants were shocked at his turn around which he explains so well in 12:22-23.  David understands life after death. David knows his baby is with the Lord and he will be with him someday.  It’s a beautiful faith on display for us. Next David comforts his wife,  Bathsheba, and along comes baby Solomon, whom the Lord loves. The Lord gives, and takes away. Blessed be the Name of the Lord. 💖
