He saw her naked body while she took a bath. He sent for her and they had sex. He was the king, how could she deny him right? She was married and now, pregnant. Her husband, not the father of the baby, was sent for from the battle lines to come home and spend time with his wife. The cover up had begun. But he did not spend time with her; he was a dutiful soldier. Go to plan B.
Put him at the forefront of the battle, abandon him there and let him die. Oh king David you bad man. 2 Samuel chapter 11
And here comes Nathan, the prophet with an analogical story of what took place. David, angry, demanded that that person should pay. Nathan said, “Thou art the man.” He acknowledged and admitted. He asked for forgiveness. He was repentant. He was forgiven, but he still received punishment. 2 Samuel chapter 12
Some seek out forgiveness while others feel, think and believe that they will not be forgiven, not after what they did. But you do not understand. Believe it or not, some people do and will.
Have a moon morning and a starry night. 🙂
Have a lovely, sunflower day. 🙂
