We are all familiar with the story I am about to write but if we are not, I will surely explain it to us all and we will all remember.

King David in the Bible is known to be a man after God's heart cos of how he believed so much in God and how he loved him but amidst all these, he is known to have committed all types of sins in the Bible (if not all).

While his men were on the battleground fighting against other neighbouring villages, as a king, he was supposed to lead the battle but he choose to rest at home. While he was roaming around his house, he saw the wife of his servant from afar having her bath, he saw her nakedness and he couldn't resist her.

He sent his guards to call the woman for her and before he knows it, he has gone down with the woman. After so many days the woman got pregnant and he told king David, he was scared and decided to invite the husband of the woman who was his servant and get him drunk.

He got him drunk because he want him to go and sleep with his wife so that he will be able to deny not impregnating his wife but that didn't happen. The man slept in front of the palace all through the night and when King David saw this, he then planned to kill him so that he can own the wife to himself.

When it was time for battle, the husband of the woman was also part of the soldiers and so he went with them. So after some days, king David sent a letter to him to give to the person who heads the battlefront. He didn't bother to open the letter (what a loyal servant). He did as he was instructed.

When the leader of the battle saw the letter, he shook his head and did as instructed. King David directed the leader to put the loyal servant in a place where the battle is hot and withdrew backup from him. He did and before you knew it, he was killed.

King David was happy he was killed and immediately, he took his wife in and started to take care of her and got married to her. No one knew what happened to the husband, the secret was between King David and the head of the battle.

After some weeks, the lord told a prophet to meet king David to tell him what wrong he has done. The prophecy went to him with wisdom and explained what he did in the parable by saying;

"There was a rich man who has a lot of cows and there is a poor man who has just one cow. so, the rich man has a visitor and he decides to entertain the visitor with that one cow the poor man has without touching his cows"

King David flare up and said, who is that person? How can that happen in his kingdom he said he is not going to allow that. The prophet then told him he was the one with what he did.

King David was touched and he couldn't do anything than to start asking for forgiveness from God.

Lesson;

Everything we do is not hidden from God so after we know this, we should be careful with every step we carry. We should act rightly and not do bad things that will tarnish our reputation. King David was heartless with what he did, he was selfish and couldn't see from other people's views.

Don't be like king David with what he did here, do what is right.

Thanks for reading.

Bye for now 🥰🥰🥰

I wonder hiw beautiful that bethseba is, if i am right about her name.
It waa David‹'s greatest temptation and was tried on his faith. He was so guilty that he denied it, but the Good thing is that he repented: still he was chastised about what he hadd done

Yes, I think her name is Bethsheba. David really knows how to repent from his sin with great regret showing it on his face and God loves him for that.

Even when everything is not hidden in God's eyes, we also should not keep roaming around when we ought to be busy with important things. If King David had been on the battle field fighting, he wouldn't be tempted.

The Bible says “An idle man is the devil's workmanship”. So, let's get going with important things so we won't be tempted otherwise. Above all, let us be contented.

Yes, you are right. He wasn't as t the right place at the right time and that was what led to his temptation. He should be on the battlefield but he wasn't, thank you for this dear. I will surely write about this too.

Yes, no one can claim to be a saint at all. We are all sinners and have cut short the glory of God.

That's beautiful, nothing is hidden under the sky because God sees it all. I am always curious why God still loved David after everything he did, I discovered praise was his secret to winning God's heart.

Yes, apart from those sins he committed, David was always doing what God wants and whenever he sins and knew about it, his remorseful act is always so passionate, that he will tear of his clothes and start wambling in charcoals. He knows how to praise God too.

Nothing is hidden under the sun. Even our deepest secrets that we feel they're safe, God is very much aware of them. The case of David, he was glad that he has made his way out of it but God stepped in

Yes, God sees everything that we do and he never has a saint that will go without being punished whenever they sin.
